Local author Erin Bowman is pleased to announce the upcoming release of her debut novel, ?Taken? (HarperTeen, $17.99). Erin lives in Londonderry with her husband, but grew up in northwest Connecticut, and it was there her love and infatuation with stories and writing was born. She attended summer writing programs at a local college as a child, and later took creative writing electives at her high school. Her love of storytelling followed her to the Rochester Institute of Technology where she minored in creative writing while pursuing a degree in New Media. A web designer in Boston for several years following her graduation in 2007, writing remained a hobby until Erin drafted the first chapters of what would eventually become ?Taken.? ?Her friends and family first insisted, ?Finish writing this,? and later added, ?You should look into publication.?
?Taken? is a sci-fi novel for teens (ages 12+), and tells the story of a boy living in an isolated community where all boys mysteriously vanish upon their eighteenth birthday. It is the first in a planned trilogy, with the first novel releasing April 16th, 2013.
Erin will be at Hollis Library, 2 Monument Square, Hollis, on Thursday, April 25th, to talk about her novel and writing journey, answer reader questions, and sign copies. Toadstool Bookshop will be present for attendees wishing to buy a book at the event. The talk begins at 6pm and is open to the public.
