Meet Deron Hicks, author of Tower of the Five Orders, the second installement in The Shakespeare Mysteries, which follows the adventures of Colophon Letterford, an intrepid teen who must navigate many dangers to save her families small publishing business and much more. Both children and adults will delight in the puzzles these novels offer.
Deron joins us as an Indies First Author on Small Business Saturday to hand sell his book to you. Copies of both his books will be available for sale.
From the Flap: Colophon Letterford’s life changed overnight when she uncovered Shakespeare’s lost manuscripts. In the spine-tingling follow-up to the critically acclaimed Secrets of Shakespeare’s Grave, those discoveries are putting her family in the spotlight… and in danger. Thirteen year old Colophon and her cousin Julian are back on the case, secreting through Oxford University’s gothic halls and running for their lives through the damp and dreary London Underground. Will they expose Shakespeare’s true identity and crack an ancient code in time?
As an attorney, Deron Hicks investigates mysteries for a living, so it’s only natural that he would write about William Shakespeare, one of literature’s most puzzling people. With his own children’s natural curiosity as inspiration, Deron set out to reveal a bit of the mystery of the real world and show that many of its secrets and stories still wait to be told. When he isn’t working, Deron likes to paint, garden, and play basketball with his children. He lives in Warm Springs, Georgia, with his wife, Angela, and their two children, Meg and Parker.
Meet local author Charmain Zimmerman Brackett and get the first opportunity to buy her latest book, a contemporary, inspirational and romantic novel about love that triumphs over the hardships of life.
From the Flap: As her daughter heads off to college, Lisa watches as her picture-perfect life starts unraveling. Lisa’s fulfilling career vanishes overnight due to budget cuts, and her loving husband’s battle with his own personal demons threatens to ruin their once stable marriage. Forced to make tough choices, Lisa looks for second chances. Can she have it all?
Charmain Zimmerman Brackett grew up in a picturesque Southern neighborhood filled with front porches and retirees. Laura Ingalls Wilder, Nancy Drew and Mina Harker were some of her closest companions in her childhood and teenage years. In college, her love of literature, language and writing led her to pursue a degree in English. She has spent the past 26 years writing for several newspapers and magazines in the Augusta, Ga. area. In 2008, a story in a series she wrote on returning wounded warriors received second place at the Department of the Army level in the Keith L. Ware journalism competition. She has written three YA novels, The Key of Elyon, Elyon’s Cipher and Elyon’s Light.
