Week 2

Local author, Susan Kehoe has written two novels, Ireland: Snapshots In Time & Nuggets. She is currently working on her next book. She has some very interesting stories about her travels, her inspirations, and what kinds of things inspire her.


Prince Edward County author, Robin Timmerman, has written 5 mystery novels. She writes with colour and enthusiasm about the characters in a small town.When we asked her to participate in our local authors series, she wanted to write a letter directly to the patrons of our library.

You can click the link below to read more about her influences, her process of writing, her advice to other writers, and what she calls the “big thrill” of writing stories that others love to read.
