Of all places to find a new author is a craft fair at my local community center. And not just one-2 of them!
One is Tracy Fontaine, a debut author, who wrote Beyond Lilla. She is a 30 year resident of the city that I was born in; the book is set in the city's municipal cemetery that was founded in 1838 and is still in use today.
The second author is Sally Valentine, a teacher and a Rochester native, who writes middle grade historical fiction and poetry about the Rochester area.
Of course, I walked out with 3 books, autographed and all.
