(Reprinted from the West Seattle Herald)
A lifelong fan of folklore and mythology, Molly Ringle has been writing both contemporary fiction and paranormal fiction for over twenty-five years. She will present two novels about the Greek myths next Friday, Sept. 5th: ‘Persephone’s Orchard,’ (Central Avenue Publishing, 2013) the first in the series; and book 2, ‘Underworld’s Daughter’ (Central Publishing, 2014). Past titles include The Ghost Downstairs, Relatively Honest, What Scotland Taught Me, and Summer Term. A love story is always part of the plot, so some of the books are classified as romance too.
With her intense devotion to silly humor, Ringle was especially proud to win the grand prize in the 2010 Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest with one (intentionally) terrible sentence. Molly grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and has lived in West Seattle with her husband and children for almost ten years and other parts of Seattle for a few years before that. Her studies include a bachelor of arts in anthropology and a master of arts in linguistics. She was a Tri-Delta in college in an old sorority house that was supposedly haunted which inspired some of the central ideas for ‘The Ghost Downstairs.’ When not writing, she can often be found experimenting with fragrances, chocolate, and gardening.
The public is invited to this FREE series from 5 to 7PM at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village. Other local authors will be featured in this free FIRST FRIDAY book talk series in coming months at Barnes & Noble in Westwood Village.
