By Jean Knight Pace and Jacob Kennedy
TWO LOCAL AUTHORS COMBINE HIGH FANTASY WITH WOLF LORE TO CREATE A FRESH NEW YOUNG ADULT NOVEL
Before the rise of men, there were wolves…
What started off as stories local ER doctor Jacob Kennedy made up featuring his kids as main characters soon morphed into a project big enough that he asked local writer Jean Knight Pace if she’d be interested in co-authoring a book. She was excited to join up, adding to the story with her own ideas and style (and slipping her children into some of the character’s skins as well). Before they knew it, Kennedy and Pace had crafted what began as a few paragraphs of backstory into a book of high fantasy for tweens and teens. Instead of dragons, elves, and dwarves there were werewolf monarchs, talking dogs, and impoverished humans winding their way through a story that culminated in a Gladiator-style tournament—a tournament won (or lost, depending on how you look at it) by an unlikely hero and an unlikely traitor.
Join Jean and Jake as they launch/debut their new book, Grey Stone, at Barnes and Noble on August 20, 2016 at 3:30 pm, at the Evansville, IN, location. There will be giveaways, contests, a book signing, Q & A, and (naturally) candy and laughter.
Jean Knight Pace has had essays and short stories published in Puerto del Sol, The Lakeview Review, Crucible, and other literary magazines. Jacob Kennedy is an ER doctor who dreams werewolves and tournaments in his free time. Both of them live in Evansville with amazing spouses, boodles of kids, and furry pets who (as far as anyone knows) do not speak. You can find out more at jeanknightpace.com, jacobkennedybooks.com.
