Authors Brenda Drake, Jane Lindskold and Gabi Stevens celebrate the release of their new fantasy books.
THREE NM AUTHORS CELEBRATE "FANTASY FICTION SPECTACULAR" 4:00 PM SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24 AT PAGE ONE
New Mexico authors Brenda Drake, Jane Lindskold, and Gabi Stevens are celebrating the release of their new fantasy books 4:00 pm Saturday, February 24, in a "Fantasy Fiction Spectacular" at Page One Books. Drake's latest is "Assassin of Truths: Library Jumpers Book 3," Lindskold has "Asphodel," and Stevens' effort is "Mystic."
Drake's "Assassin of Truths" is described as such: "The gateways linking the great libraries of the world don’t require a library card, but they do harbor incredible dangers. And it’s not your normal bump-in-the- night kind. The threats Gia Kearns faces are the kind with sharp teeth and knifelike claws. The kind that include an evil wizard hell-bent on taking her down. Gia can end his devious plan, but only if she recovers seven keys hidden throughout the world’s most beautiful libraries. And then figures out exactly what to do with them. The last thing she needs is a distraction in the form of falling in love. But when an impossible evil is unleashed, love might be the only thing left to help Gia save the world."
Lindskold's "Asphodel" is teased as such: "Prison or Refuge? Nameless in a doorless tower graced with seven windows, she is imprisoned. Who is her jailer? What is her crime? After she discovers the secret of the seven windows, the nameless one, accompanied by two impossible companions, sets forth on fantastical journeys of exploration. But, for the nameless one, learning her name may not be a welcome revelation, and the identity of her jailer will rock the foundations of a tower that has come to be as much refuge as prison."
And Stevens' "Mystic" book is thus described: "On the run, and he’s still trying to figure out how that happened, Trask Sinclair must keep psychic Allys Joel from getting captured, or killed, before they get to the safe haven promised in Mystic, Wyoming. How can a good deed go so wrong? Trask Sinclar is a reasonable man. Skeptical, sure, a little removed, but he's a writer, and he enjoys being a popular novelist and living comfortably. When he saves Allys Joel from a bully in a hotel lobby, Trask doesn't expect to lose control of his life to a reluctant and beautiful psychic, a mind-controlling bad-guy, a cross-country chase and a talking cat. Truth is stranger than fiction. Allys Joel sees the future when she touches someone. That's why a Wall Street firm held her prisoner for sixteen months. Her escape embroils the sexy, somewhat aloof, Trask Sinclair in her world of people with powers. And her search to discover the secrets that can save or destroy them leads to Mystic, WY, where they just might find their forever - together."
Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother's animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical. When she's not writing or hanging out with her family, she haunts libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or reads someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment). She lives in Albuquerque.
Lindskold is the award-winning, bestselling author of more than 20 novels, including the incredibly popular Firekeeper series ("Through Wolf’s Eyes" to "Wolf’s Blood") and the New Mexico-based "Child of a Rainless Year," as well as more than 60 shorter works. Several of her novels have been chosen by VOYA for their Best SF, Fantasy and Horror list. Lindskold's work has been repeatedly praised for its sensitive depiction of worlds and cultures different from our own — especially those that aren't in the least human. She has been a frequent contributor to Weber's "Honorverse," where her tales of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Michael have a loyal and enthusiastic following. Her most recent books were novels "Artemis Awakening" and "Artemis Invaded," and short-story collection "Curiosities." She lives in Albuquerque with her husband and several furry creatures.
Stevens was born in Southern California to Hungarian parents. After spending time in boarding school, college, and studying abroad, she spent eight years in the classroom trying to teach eighth graders the joys of literature. An award-winning author, Gabi writes in Albuquerque where she lives with her robotics engineer husband, three daughters, and two dogs. She loves to play games (She’s appeared on "Family Feud" and "Jeopardy!"), has a wicked addiction to reading, avoids housework and cooking, and doesn’t travel nearly as much as she would like to.
