Reading & Book Signing
Urban fantasy comes to life in the latest novels by local authors J.A. Pitts and Camille Griep. In Night Terrors, the fourth novel of Pitts' Sarah Beauhall series, the badass blacksmith must slip into an alternate nightmare dimension in order to save her girlfriend and keep the living nightmares from invading the real world. From Camille Griep, author of Letters to Zell, New Charity Blues tells the story of a dystopian world divided in two following a devastating plague and the clash between two friends over the allotment of precious water from a magical dam. As their new novels hit shelves, we're excited to celebrate their release at this reading and signing with Pitts and Griep.
J.A. Pitts learned to love science fiction at the knee of his grandmother, listening to her read authors like Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard during his childhood in rural Kentucky. J.A. Pitts life has always been heavily influenced by strong women. His mother first among them: raising three boys after the death of his father, with grace and wit.
Camille Griep is the author of Letters to Zell and New Charity Blues. She lives just north of Seattle with her partner, Adam, and their bulldog, Dutch. Born in Billings, Montana, she attended Claremont McKenna College in southern California, graduating with a dual degree in biology and literature. In late 2011, she took a hiatus from corporate research to devote more time to her craft. She has since sold short fiction and creative nonfiction to dozens of online and print magazines.
