We’ve gathered the top summer books written by NC Authors for you at the Bond Brothers NC Author Showcase on June 2nd from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at 202 E. Cedar St. in Cary, N.C.
The Summer Author Showcase features WRAL’s Amanda Lamb‘s book launch for “No Wake Zone,” her third book in the Maddie Arnette Mystery series. Amanda will have her books for sale with a special “No Wake Zone” reading at 7 p.m.
About “No Wake Zone” After a near brush with death, Maddie Arnette heads to the charming coastal town of Cape Mayson, North Carolina, to heal. She temporarily trades in her microphone for a paddleboard. But when she finds a dead man floating in the water, her sabbatical turns into a quest for the truth.
Amanda Lamb is a veteran television crime reporter with three decades of experience. She works for an award-winning NBC affiliate in the southeast. She also appears on a regular basis on national news magazine programs and networks which feature crime stories. She has recently taken on a new role as the host and producer of a true crime podcast called Follow the Truth, which features in-depth investigation into high-profile cases.
Summer NC Authors Showcase:
Sheila Ogle, author of “The Pink House.” One of Cary’ NCs Top Ten Places to Visit Tells Town Secrets. Cary philanthropist and entrepreneur Sheila Ogle masterfully weaves the story of the beautiful Victorian Mansion located in the heart of downtown Cary in her book “The Pink House.”
Allison Forrester, author of “A Special Light,” is perfect for preschool and early elementary kids. The story is about Ella, the egret, and her new friend as they spend time on the Bogue Sound shoreline. This delightful Christian children’s book includes illustrations from award winning artist Cinzia Battistel.
Holly Richard, author of “One Hundred Twenty-Six Days: The Unthinkable Journey.” This deeply emotional, nonfiction account by Richard is about her son Derek Lemieux and how life can radically change in the blink of an eye. The book puts you onto an unthinkable path as the family is thrown onto the cancer battlefield. What follows is nothing anyone could ever imagine.
Richard’s book also includes resources to support families who are on a similar journey and need help. A portion of the proceeds goes toward the D-Rex Defenders effort that is used to help find a cure for brain cancer.
