LOCAL SCI-FI AUTHOR VISITS PAGE ONE WITH CHILDREN'S BOOK 4:00 PM SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23
RJ "the Story Guy" Mirabal, a retired Los Lunas high school teacher, will be at Page One Books 4:00 pm Saturday, November 23, to talk about and sign his first book in a new children's series, "Trixie Finds Her People: Trixie the Brown Dog Book 1."
The book is described as such: "RJ the Story Guy tells the story of Trixie the Brown Dog. This mama dog is rescued from a situation where she and her puppies were part of a hoard of 23 dogs. Soon, her puppies were adopted, and she joins a girl and her grandparents as her new family. At first, everything is new: living indoors in her new home, learning to potty outdoors, getting the occasional bath (not fun!), and being locked in the laundry room at night (really not fun!). Soon Trixie and her people's lives turn into a series of wonderful, humorous and sometimes scary adventures. In addition to her real life, Trixie embarks on three fantasy adventures while she sleeps. In the end it's all about the bond of love between a rescue dog and her true forever family."
RJ the Story Guy (Mirabal) has lived in the Middle Rio Grande Valley for most of his life. Recognized with awards for his teaching, he is now retired, pursues writing and music while volunteering with various organizations. He still is active in teacher organizations. He is past president and rally chairman of the Land of Enchantment BMW Riders and remains active in the club. When he's not writing or promoting his books, Mirabal explores back roads and wilderness trails throughout the state. He also plays the hammered dulcimer, and is a board member of the New Mexico Dulcimer Association which puts on a yearly dulcimer music festival. His first novel, "The Tower of Il Serrohe," was a Finalist in the Science Fiction and Fantasy category of the 2013 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards.
