Sunday May 28th Featured Writers
We are excited to add a 5th author to our Author Author Series for the month of May. Please all welcome Tim Uhr.
“Touched” is Tim's first novel, “To the Sea” is his second and as yet is unpublished. Articulate Writing, articles on various subjects in a letter form, is something Tim started in junior high school (Blogging before blogging existed). Most of these he writes with tongue planted firmly in his cheek, although during various tragedies and hard times they take on a different feel. They are something he still writes to this day, probably with more metaphysical bent. Tim has written several short stories both published and unpublished throughout the years.
He has a website Timuhr.com and a blog uhrth.blogspot.com where you can read some of his diversified writing, from new age to comedy to commentary to literary to science fiction to etc. Come meet Tim in person this Sunday on May 28th at 11:00 am.

Debbi Perkul’s career has spanned several fields, ranging from Jewish education, social studies teacher, and currently, workforce development, helping people increase their education to move into higher skilled, higher paying jobs. Debbi’s thesis for her master’s degree in Jewish History was a short biography of her great-great-great aunt Rae Landy, which made her think that someday she would write a book about her. After years of just thinking about it, Debbi was finally inspired to write her book and is so grateful for everyone who encouraged her to follow her dream. Debbi enjoys long bike rides and going on travel adventures with her husband and family. Debbi proudly calls Cleveland, Ohio her home.

Stacey Greene takes the reader through a subject many people have experienced, but few are comfortable talking about......infidelity. Greene's book puts one couple's decision to grow from this episode into fiction format. The character, Michelle, made assumptions about her marriage that did not allow her to see anything out of the ordinary. To further complicate the relationship, one spouse uses faith in God while the other vacillates on the existence or not of a higher power. Do the children figure it out? Does the character, Jim, continue to see the other woman? Will the marriage make it? Greene uses an autobiographical approach to show the reader what lies on the other side of such a breach of trust.
Join Stacey on Sunday May 28th at 3:00 pm for an person meet and greet.
