Marcia Preston Virtual Event
Join Best of Books' in conversation with Marcia Preston, about her newest novel, THE SPIDERLING.
This event is free and will stream to BoB's Facebook Live.
Eleven-year-old Kiwi Seager knows two things: She will be going to hell someday and, worse, her mother can no longer love her. Kiwi has done something no mother could ever forgive, something that has forced this mother and daughter to flee their California home . . . and to accept the help of strangers. Can they run fast enough and far enough to lose the evil following them? Or does new danger await them, wearing the face of a Good Samaritan? Kiwi holds out little hope of a mother and child reunion, but for now being together is better than nothing.
Marcia Preston's first novels were mysteries featuring the daughter of a Gypsy mother and a redneck father. One of these (Song of the Bones) won the Mary Higgins Clark Award for suspense fiction. Marcia herself is neither a Gypsy nor a redneck, just a Democrat. For twenty years, Marcia edited and published ByLine, a national magazine for freelance writers. She freelanced for a long list of national magazines before becoming a full-time novelist. She now writes fiction centered on issues important to families and women readers. The Butterfly House hit #1 on the Heatseekers bestseller list in England and sold widely in Europe. Marcia is an experienced speaker for writers' conferences, libraries, book clubs and civic groups. She is a past-president and Honorary Life Member of the statewide Oklahoma Writers Federation Inc. She lives beside a creek in central Oklahoma, where she feeds the birds and dodges tornadoes. She keeps a life list of identified bird species and is an amateur lepidopterist.
