October 7th – come join us for a supernatural afternoon of readings, refreshments, and tour the historic home. Are there ghosts? You tell us!
Marietta House Museum’s “Author’s & Playwright’s Corner” presents supernatural fiction with authors H.L. Brooks, and Dea Schofield. This event is a great opportunity to support independent women authors.
Brooks and Schofield will read from their new books, amid the haunting atmosphere of the historic home.
Tour the home from 2:30- 3:30 pm. with the readings beginning at 3:30 pm. Following the readings there will be a meet & greet, refreshments, costume contest and book signing. Copies of their books will be available for *purchase.
Participate in the costume contest–best werewolf or vampire costume, or dress as one of the characters from the Red August or Vitaortus series. There will be a prize!
Heather Brooks (H. L. Brooks), is the author of the Red August Series and will read from, Red Archer: Book Two of the Red August Series.
Following a season of late weddings and new romance, August Archer is ready to embrace the next part of her life–ready to reclaim her lost heritage, and to join herself with the man she loves.
H. L. Brooks is a writer of fiction and lover of fairy tales. She enjoys exploring classic fairy tales and re-telling them in modern settings, with drama and adventure. She also writes on such topics as art, music, and feminism. She resides in the Metro Washington, D.C. area.
Dea Schofield is the author of the supernatural fusion-fiction series, “Vitaortus” and will read from Vitaortus: Book One. The Vitaortus Series is an ongoing verdant, vampy tale for our times. A ‘young’ woman with her own mysteries finds she has what it takes, with the help of a special vine, to conserve hidden, sanguinivorous species. They must ally to fight much darker, threatening forces—undead, religio-political, magic.
Currently a resident of the Metro Washington, D.C. area, she has lived in several countries and traveled extensively. Like her written work, she considers her life an unconventional fusion of experience, knowledge, and tastes. She enjoys combining disparate ideas and genres to create fun, rich, thought-provoking stories.
