On May 12 in Sprint/Baker Gallery

Join area authors Miralee Ferrell, Paula Friedman and Sheila Simonson at the White Salmon Valley Community library on Saturday, May 12, at 2 p.m. in the library's Sprint/Baker Gallery.

They will be reading from their latest works and sharing some insights into the writing process and where they find the inspiration for their stories.

Simonson, who has a number of titles available in eBook format, will be sharing her experience with the eBook revolution. The reading will be followed by a Book Signing.

Simonson lives in Vancouver with her husband Mickey. She is the author of numerous books including her earlier regency romances now available in new editions and eBook format. She has published two mystery series set in Washington State: the first on the Long Beach Peninsula; and her current mystery series in the Columbia River Gorge.

The first title in her current series, Buffalo Bill's Defunct, won a WILLA Award from Women Writing the West for best soft-cover fiction in 2009. The third title in her current series, Beyond Confusion, will be published by Perseverance Press in trade paperback in February 2013.

Ferrell lives in White Salmon with her husband of 39 years, Allen. She's an avid reader and has six inspirational books in print, two contemporary women's fiction titles, four historical romances, and is currently under contract for a new, three-book historical romance series. Ferrell's fourth historical romance with Summerside Press in their Love Finds You series, set in Sundance, Wyo., was released in summer 2011.

Friedman lives and writes in Hood River County. Her writing has received Pushcart Prize nominations, and other awards and residencies including recognition from New Millennium Writing, OSPA, Indigo Press, and Soapstone. Her works have been published in numerous anthologies and literary magazines. Author of The Rescuer's Path (2012, Plan View) and Time and Other Details (2006 Highlights Press), she is also an editor, writing instructor, journalist, and social justice activist receiving an award in 2006 from the Columbia River Fellowship for Peace.
