Triple Tale of Love, Death and Destiny Grips Fiction Fans in New Book

ENGLEWOOD, N.J. (PRWEB) February 20, 2013

From the award-winning playwright Mary Casella, It Happened in the Pine Barrens is a compelling saga of love, death and destiny set in the heavily forested area of coastal plain stretching across southern New Jersey. Casellas newly published book transforms this Pinelands into a center of thrilling events that arouse the curiosity and excitement of fiction fans through three riveting stories: Snakes with Ruby Eyes, Love and Death in the Pines and Closure in the Pines.

Snakes with Ruby Eyes follows the mysterious turn of events in the life of Elizabeth Little. After the death of Catherine, her artist mother and owner of The Little Antic Shop, Beth strangely inherits a huge amount of cash and a long list of questions about her parents life. Stan Turner, who perseveringly pines for her love and affection, witnesses and supports Beth throughout her journey towards self-rediscovery.

Love and Death in the Pines picks up the story from where the first tale left off. It revolves around the entwined destinies of Dr. James Bradley, physician, and Dr. Meghan Malloy, an assistant art history professor. They met at the opening of The Pines Antique Shop (formally The Little Antic Shop). James was a friend of Meghan’s aunt. Meghan had created an art gallery in the shop to display the art work of Catherine Little. Both never knew that a chance encounter would lead them to love.

Closure in the Pines completes the trilogy in stunning fashion. James, who was secretly an FBI /Interpol agent, wants to resign from the department. His resignation is denied. While finalizing some cases, Meghan suddenly disappears. A manhunt ensues. Drug trafficking and gunfight also makes this final story a perfect closing salvo. However, as one of the characters aptly put it, There is no closure in the crime business.

Creatively blending fast-paced drama, mystery and romance with the slow-paced life in Pine Barrens, Casella has successfully put the place on the map for another remarkable reason. It Happened in the Pine Barrens is a book that leaves readers deeply satisfied yet eagerly longing for answers to more questions inherent in the saga.

Some recent best sellers fiction auctions on eBay: Announces Four New Works of Fiction

Sacramento, California (PRWEB) February 01, 2013

There is reason to celebrate. The writer Lawrence BoarerPitchford has announced that he is currently working on four new works for your reading enjoyment. As you might remember, last year the author came back on the scene after being away for twelve years. He provided four e-books that titillated the imagination taking the reader to magical realms, on epic adventures; to the Republic of Rome, and the heart of the American Civil War. Along the way, he donated six months of royalties to the American Cancer Society, and did an interview with the infamous Riq Reed which can be viewed on his web site

This year (2013), Lawrence BoarerPitchford is forging ahead to bring to market a masterful work in the genre of Steampunk science fiction. This story will take the reader on a stark journey across a dark continent where steam technology, airships, and dangerous cobblestone city streets compete for attention among smartly dressed courtesans, men in tweed jackets, bowler hats, and fancy dress. Also on the docket is the sequel to The Lantern of Dern Blackhammer, In the World of Hyboria, and his most famous and cheeky story Tales of Mad Cows and Brothels.

The author had this to say, There is much to disclose to you my avid and loyal readers. Im carried by the amazing response to my books, and your continued requests that I follow up with these hallmark tales. As always, quality means taking some time to do the job right, so I hope that you remain patient with me as I slave away at my keyboard day and night to produce the requested works. As always I hold you all in the highest regards.

Take a moment to see what all the fuss is about. If you have a Kindle and have a couple of dollars to spend, take a trip to the book store and download a few of his latest novels. Lawrence writes both fantasy and historical fiction. He is best known for his fantasy novel The Lantern of Dern Blackhammer; his fan fiction homage to the creator of Conan the Barbarian In the World of Hyboria; as well as his two historical works Sawbones, and Thadius. Lastly, he is offering for free his first novel titled Tales of Mad Cows and Brothels; a story of three anti-heroes who find that protecting Elizabeth I from nefarious forces is a challenge, considering the Queen wants their heads mounted on pikes.
