FEATURED READER: Mari Sloan
She has also published short stories, poetry, articles, and was a co-editor for an online and in-print literary magazine. Partnered with her husband, she also has experience in cover design, publishing and loves simple photography.
Mari will be reading from ROAD TRIP. Here’s the blurb: ROAD TRIP is a cosmic suspense thriller, the sequel to BEAUFORT FALLS, and the fate of Earth depends on this motley crew’s trip across America. Charlie and Molly from BEAUFORT FALLS are joined by a cast of unlikely characters including a child-like old man, a Chinese princess, and a bear-like director with no memory. With the help of an unlikely character from Las Vegas and a tough Native American kid, not only is this crisis survived but a crime from the beginning of the first book, BEAUFORT FALLS, is solved. It’s a spine-tingling race to the finish with passages that stimulate thought about human nature and the fragility of our Universe. Ending in Los Angeles in Chinatown, it’s a story to remember, with each chapter beginning with the perfect fortune cookie quote.
