Coweta Writers Group Meets on June 16 To Discuss The Writing of Young Adult Fiction

Panelists:  Holly Moulder, Tamala Callaway, Stephen Alexander Hammett
     At its next meeting the members of the Coweta Writers Group will discuss the writing of Young Adult fiction.  Leading the discussion will be three panelists who have recently written books of YA fiction.  After the panelists have spoken there will be an opportunity for questions and comments from the audience.
     Holly Moulder has won several awards for each of her first two published books, one of which is the only story ever written about the Calusa Indian tribe.  She is now at work on her third book, which will be published soon.  Information is available at www.whitepelicanpress.com.
     Tamala Callaway is the only author who has ever written a fiction book set in today’s Coweta County.  The first two books of her Super Natural hexology have been published and the rest will come out soon.  Information is available at www.tamalacallaway.tateauthor.com
     Stephen Alexander Hammett’s first book — published late last year — has one of the strangest titles ever and the story is also a bit odd:  a boy changes into a fox!  He is now working on his next one.  Information is available at www.daileyswanpublishing.com
     The meeting will be held at the Ashley Park Barnes & Noble in Newnan on Saturday June 16 from 10 AM through 12 Noon.  The meeting is open to the public.
