Join us in welcoming local New Hampshire authors Kerri Cuevas and Laura Howard to The Toadstool Bookshop, Keene on Saturday, September 21st at 11am where they will be discussing and signing copies of their young adult novels Deadly Kisses and The Forgotten One.
Deadly Kisses by Kerri Cuevas - Aiden Grant has a killer kiss. Literally. And it’s not every reaper who gets to work with the Sixteenth President. Sure, Honest Abe likes to throw out history lessons with reaping assignments, but when you’re favored by the ancients, grim reaper life is pretty sweet for a newly dead seventeen-year-old. Then things get messy. Aiden is assigned to reap the soul of Bee, the only girl he has ever loved. When Aiden’s kiss of death fails, intertwining their souls, she is still very much alive and they are both in trouble. The ancients want Bee, who has special powers of her own, and they’ll do anything to get her. Some rules are meant to be broken, even if that means Aiden must bargain his own soul to save Bee. Who knew the afterlife could get so complicated? Kerri Cuevas was born and raised in Rhode Island. In 2005 she moved to New Hampshire with her husband, three kids, cats, and a rabbit named Hercules. When she's not writing, she's chasing chickens on her small farm or searching for the ultimate mac-and-cheese recipe. Kerri went to college for Early Childhood Education but now writes books for young adults full-time. Her storytelling stems from watching too many horror flicks as a teen, although she no longer needs to sleep with the lights on.
The Forgotten Ones by Laura Howard - Allison O'Malley's plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she's been in love with for as long as she can remember.
What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison's mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn't trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother's sanity. Laura Howard lives in New Hampshire with her husband and four children. Her obsession with books began at the age of 6 when she got her first library card. Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High and other girly novels were routinely devoured in single sittings. Books took a backseat to diapers when she had her first child. It wasn’t until the release of a little novel called Twilight that she rediscovered her love of fiction. Soon after, her own characters began to make themselves known. The Forgotten Ones is her first published novel and the first in a trilogy.
