Come by CRYSTAL Books and Gifts, during this years first weekly Off The Shelf Author Series on Thursday evenings during the Downtown Farmers Market. It is free to the public and is a great opportunity to meet local authors while enjoying informative and entertaining presentations by them.

On Thursday, July 19th, from 6pm to 7pm, author Sherry Ficklin, will be talking about “Starting Strong”; how to hook your readers and keep them reading past bedtime. She will explore what makes a compelling opening and tips for hooking your reader with each chapter. Sherry will also be featuring her Stolen Empire Trilogy; historical fiction based on the life of young Catherine The Great. The titles are Queen Of Someday, Queen Of Tomorrow, and Queen Of Always.

Sherry is a full-time writer from Colorado and the author of over a dozen novels for teens and young adults including the best-selling Stolen Empire series. She also writes New Adult fiction under the pen name Ranae Glass and appears as a guest speaker at several conventions annually.
