Local author hosts signing for debut novel

First-time author publishes juvenile fantasy/adventure

Debut author M.K. Wood of Nanoose Bay will host a book signing for her juvenile fantasy/adventure tale today, Dec. 22, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at Quality Resort Bayside in Parksville.

The story, Piper’s Pond, follows a 13-year-old girl who spots a flickering piece of purple foil in an air vent in her bedroom and is led into a world of fairies and magic.

The majority of the book was written in long-hand form, by the ocean near her Nanoose Bay home or at the Parksville beach.

Self-published through Friesen Press, Piper’s Pond is available in hardback, paperback and an e-edition. Copies will be available for purchase during the signing, to be held in the lobby of Quality Resort Bayside.
