I was born and grew up in Midland, MI. Recently, I was invited to be one of the authors on hand for a local author event at the Midland Barnes & Noble back in October.
After the event, I meant to do a rundown of the array of authors who were there, but I don't think I ever did. It was wide selection of writers -- some relatively new to writing; some who've been at it a long time; some self-published; some mainstream-published; pretty much every genre represented; a little bit of everything.
Anyway, in the spirit of better-late-than-never, here's a belated rundown of the writers who were there:
Maril Ozanne Garrison
Jae W. Oh
Cassandra J. Sperry
Jack R. Westbrook
(I think I've included everyone who was there in this list, but if I've overlooked anyone, let me know.)
