August 23rd with Special Guest Author BONNIE LEON

Northwest writers: Join us Monday, August 23rd at 6:30pm for a fun, info packed evening. Our guest speaker will be Bonnie Leon. Her presentation: Opening Lines - Why do they matter? Learn how you can write a captivating beginning to your novel.

Bonnie Leon is the author of seventeen novels and counting. Her latest book, Touching Clouds, is the first in her new Alaskan Skies Series.

More about Touching Clouds: Kate Evans is an adventurous and independent young woman with a pioneering spirit. She pilots a mail-delivery plane in the forbidding Alaskan wilderness, the lone woman in a male profession. But even that seems easy compared to finding true love. She likes a fellow pilot and would even consider marrying him--if it weren't for Paul, a mysterious man on her mail route with a gentle spirit and a past to hide. Can Kate break through the walls Paul has put up around his heart? And will her quest for adventure be her demise? Book 1 in the Alaskan Skies series, Touching the Clouds will draw readers in with raw emotion and suspense, all against the stunning backdrop of the Alaskan wilds.

Be sure to check out this book and the other books in Bonnie’s collection of works.

About Bonnie: Bonnie Leon dabbled in writing for many years but never set it in a place of priority until an accident in 1991 left her unable to work at her job. She is now the author of several historical fiction series, including the Sydney Cove series, Queensland Chronicles, the Matanuska series, the Sowers Trilogy, and the Northern Lights series. She also stays busy teaching women’s Bible studies, speaking, and teaching at writing seminars and women’s gatherings. Bonnie and
her husband, Greg, live in Southern Oregon. They have three grown children and four grandchildren.
