Local Authors (more coming soon)

Kay says: "When I was a child I read voraciously and indiscriminately, but my tastes even then tended toward fantasy and science fiction. Intriguing locales compelled me. When I discovered Tolkien, the hook was set; fantastic literature could be deep as well as fun. In college I majored in English Literature and went on to graduate school, hoping to write, but judging that I’d need a day job.
