Fantasy author Mark Freeman

On Thursday April 16th 7-9pm:

Author Mark Freeman will be discuss his wonderful new fantasy novel, The Kindling of Greenfyr, Book One: The Reunification Conspiracy. The Kindling of GreenFyr is the story of Owen McInish, an awkward fourteen year old, bullied at school, and friendless except for his pet cat, Piper. That is, until a snow leopard is chased through the woods behind his house by three huge gray dogs with glowing green eyes. Owen saves the leopard from her pursuers, but the animal escapes him as well, only to return later. The cat's behavior is peculiar, nothing like a wild animal, making Owen even more curious as to its origin. But only when the animal finally allows Owen to touch it, does Owen's adventure truly begin. Author Mark Freeman lives in Hyde Park with his wife and two daughters. He was educated and trained as a wildlife biologist. When not writing Mark has studied grizzly and black bears, bobcats, spiny soft shell turtles and spruce grouse.
