MILTON-Three local authors are hosting a book signing and reading excerpts from their books later this month at an area coffee shop.

Carrie Anne Noble of Hughesville, is a former Luminary correspondent who now crafts enchanting fiction for teens and adults. Her award-winning debut novel The Mermaid’s Sister was called a “must read” by Publishers Weekly and was named the Amazon Breakthrough Novel for YA fiction in 2014. Her second novel, The Gold-Son, recounts the adventures of a teenage leprechaun. Her work has appeared in Deep Magic E-zine and Splickety Magazine, as well as on the Folklore Thursday website. Noble’s next tale of enchantment is to be released in May.

Sue Fairchild, of Watsontown, is an editor, writer, blogger, webmistress, and blog coordinator. She has written and self-published three books: “What You Think You Know” (young adult fiction), “Summer’s Refrain” (women’s contemporary fiction), and “Edit Your Novel for Less.” She has published close to twenty devotions in The Secret Place and The Upper Room devotional magazines, as well as articles for her local newspaper. She is a member of the Christian Proofreaders and Editors Network (PEN) and St. Davids Christian Writers’ Association.

Jill Marie Thomas, of Lewisburg, and great-great granddaughter of Julius Sturgis, maker of delectable Sturgis pretzels, provides a fun presentation based on her book Twisted: Mindful Pretzel Consumption. Thomas also wrote Risking It All: One Woman’s Adventure Giving Away Her Income, and The Day My Son Fell from the Sky.
