West Seattle authors, again

Perhaps it’s the ol’ law of attraction. We were browsing library shelves far from West Seattle last weekend and playing book roulette — just grab something that looks somewhat interesting. We didn’t read the author blurb, didn’t recognize the name, just saw the sci-fi/fantasy type plot summary and said “why not.” Started reading it last night, thought a name in the author’s family acknowledgments looked familiar,  followed the Google trail … yes, the author is from West Seattle. Of ALL the books to pull out of the stack! Just started it so no review, but add this to your list of WS authors. P.S. Speaking of WS authors, the WSB reader behind “Heidi, Geek Girl Detective” (a “serialized mystery webcomic”) has posted Book One’s final chapter.

    This author lives in WS and is currently writing her third book (often at Uptown). In fact judging from the clues, she (and I) probably live within ten blocks of WSblog’s secret headquarters.

    There are more. I live in West Seattle and my first book’s coming out in April — THE SLEEPER AWAKES, a fantasy, will be on sale from Cerridwen Press as an e-book and in print next year.

    Did Neal Stephenson move? I’m sure I read he was a WS resident at one time. Now that’s a famous author.

    Don’t forget Tiina Nunnally, translator and mystery writer. Her Margit Andersson mysteries usually have a bit of West Seattle flavor.

    one of my clients, who also works at the West Seattle Library, is an Aussie ex-pat, and lives near the Admiral Junction…here’s her book…
