Discover Local Authors!

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018, 7 p.m.

Join Gibson's at 7 p.m. to discover a selection of new local authors from the New Hampshire writing community!  What's your preference? This evening we will have murder, fantasy, and finding inner serenity to choose from, as Jeffrey L Diamond, Steven Szmyt, and Maresha Ducharme present their books.

 

Jeffrey L Diamond draws on his background in television broadcasting to create his series of thrillers, Live to Air and Live to Tape.
Ethan Benson has no idea his life is about to change forever when he walks through the door of The Weekly Reporter where he's starting a new job as a senior producer, charged with managing the show's mercurial anchorman. As he settles in on his first day, he's summoned by the executive producer and assigned to a story about a rich heart surgeon who's confessed to the salacious murder of a young runaway he picked up on the gritty streets of a South Boston combat zone. At first, the story appears to be a random sex crime: the case two years old, the investigation long wrapped and mothballed, the killer convicted and locked away for the rest of his life. But as Ethan begins exploring the facts and meeting the principal characters, he unravels a sinister conspiracy by law enforcement officials, a pervasive cover-up driven by money, greed, and fear, and a dark secret hidden by the maniacal killer for decades. Steeped in the nuances of television production, Ethan takes the reader on a fast-paced journey through the underbelly of society using every skill at his fingertips to uncover the truth, while fighting his own inner demons in a bottle of Scotch. A true thriller, Live to Tape paints a raw, inside picture of broadcasting with its infighting and backstabbing that will keep readers asking for more.
About the author: Jeffrey L. Diamond is an award-winning producer with forty years of experience in television news. In 2015, his first murder mystery, Live to Air, was published by River Grove Books, an imprint of the Greenleaf Book Group, and in July of 2017, his second novel, Live to Tape, was published by Page Publishing, Inc. The stories are set in the world of broadcast journalism, their hero, a complex but talented producer who's crime fighting skills are modeled on Mr. Diamond's long career in network news.

 

Steven Szmyt shares his new fantasy novel, The Kingdom.

Anne, a beautiful and intelligent young graduate student, has it all. She has a kooky best friend, a fiance who adores her, and is at the top of her class. When one mysterious and charming professor offers her the chance of a lifetime, it's an opportunity she can't pass up.

As Anne and the Professor begin work on what promises to be a prestigious manuscript, strange events begin to transpire. Night terrors, fainting spells and unsavory characters who lurk around every corner are just the beginning. Should Anne just chalk them up to paranoia from the unusual subject of her work, or is something more sinister to blame? Unbeknownst to Anne, with each page she types, she delves ever deeper into a centuries-old battle for wealth and power. Soon she has to fight for the safety of herself and her family before the secrets she has learned destroy them all.
