Please come by our Bar Harbor location on Thursday, August 15th at 1PM to meet bestselling author of the Green Rider Series, Kristen Britain! She will be signing copies of her books, but of course fans should feel free to bring their copies from home to have signed. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading these excellent fantasy novels, they follow Karigan G'ladheon as she learns how to become a Green Rider - a magical, legendary messenger who are a part of an elite group of warriors sworn to help the king. These books should be on the bookshelves of any fantasy fan - so make sure you stop by and get a signed copy!
Kristen Britain grew up in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, where she started her first novel - an undersea fantasy featuring herself and her friends - at the age of nine. She published her first book, a cartoon collection called, Horses and Horsepeople, at the age of thirteen. In 1987 she completed a degree in film production, with a minor in writing, at Ithaca College. After graduation, travel beckoned and she began a career as a ranger with the National Park Service, enabling her to work in a variety of natural and historical settings, from 300 feet below the surface of the Earth to 13,000 feet above sea level on the Continental Divide; and from the textile mills of the American Industrial Revolution to the homes of Americans who changed the course of history. Her first published epic fantasy novel, "Green Rider", was released in 1998, and her newest is "The Dream Gatherer."
