Authors Spotlight – Kathy Harris, Thea Harrison, Dale Lovin
It’s time again to showcase some of the authors who’ll be appearing at the Arvada library’s Books and Bites program on Friday, September 20th, from 6-8:30 pm.
Our first author is Kathy Harris. Kathy lives in the foothills west of Denver in a cabin built during the 1920s. The cabin’s haunted, so it’s lucky she shares the space with her husband, son, and two untrainable golden retriever mixes. Kathy has been a bestselling author on Amazon.com and her book A Good Kind of Knowing earned the top literary award from the National Federation of Press Women for 2013. She has also just released her first children’s ebook, Higgenbloom and the Dancing Grandmas. Learn more about Kathy here.
Readers who enjoy paranormal romance and urban fantasy will want to come see Thea Harrison. Thea is a bestselling author on the New York Times and USA Today’s booklists thanks to her Elder Races series. The first book in the series, Dragon Bound, won the Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award for paranormal romance and was named Book of the Year by the Romantic Times Book Review. It was also listed as one of 2011’s Best Romances on Amazon.com. You can visit with Thea at her website.
Dale Lovin, our third author, definitely followed the old advice to “write what you know about.” Dale was an FBI agent for twenty-five years with a focus on violent crime investigation, and those experiences help him make The Mirror in the River a realistic, gripping suspense novel about human trafficking and a former agent caught in the crosshairs of corrupt politicians. This is a book you will not want to put down.
