Warmack Fall Author Series
Posted Date: 8/24/2014

The Warmack Branch Library presents a Fall Author Series, highlighting three different writers. In three free events, three very different authors discuss their books, backgrounds, fans, and more. No registration is required; seating is on a first-come basis.

7 p.m., Sept. 25: Win Shields

Win Shields was a staff writer for Universal Studio in Los Angeles for 37 years, where he worked on hit shows such as Murder She Wrote and Columbo, and worked with some of Hollywood's finest stars. Win also talks about his experiences as a staff writer for comedian Bob Hope. For the last 20 years he has set up home in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area where he has continued to write and teach.

7 p.m., Oct. 2: Lynne Gentry

Growing up on a Kansas dairy farm made Lynne Gentry dream of romantic adventures in far-away places and times. Today, the author, playwright and theater director writes stories that launch modern women into ancient adventures. Healer of Carthage is the first novel in her Carthage Chronicles series.

First-year resident Dr. Lisbeth Hastings is too busy to take her father’s bizarre summons seriously. But when a tragic mistake puts her career in jeopardy, answering her father’s call seems her only hope of redeeming the devastating failure that her life has become.

While exploring the haunting cave at her father’s archaeological dig, Lisbeth falls through a hidden hole, awakening to find herself the object of a slave auction and the ruins of Roman Carthage inexplicably restored to a thriving metropolis. Is it possible that she’s traveled back in time, and, if so, how can she find her way back home?

2 p.m., Oct. 4: Diane Kelly

Diane Kelly writes romantic mysteries featuring feisty heroines, quirky sidekicks, and sexy leading men, with humor that leaves readers laughing out loud.

Diane’s manuscript for Death, Taxes, and a French Manicure won the Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Golden Heart award. A CPA/tax advisor, her fiction, tax, and humor pieces have appeared in True Love Magazine, Writer’s Digest Yearbook, , and other publications.

Paw Enforcement introduces police officer Megan Luz and her loyal K-9 partner Brigit—two Fort Worth cops who are worth their weight in kibble.

The Warmack Branch Library is located at 760 Bardin Road in Grand Prairie. For more information  call 972-237-5772.
