The Main Library

Now a resident of Clinton, J. Moffett Walker was born and reared in rural Edwards, Mississippi. She earned a Bachelor’s degree from Jackson State University, Jackson, Mississippi; a Master’s degree in Personnel and Guidance from Purdue University, Hammond, Indiana; and completed an additional 30 hours of coursework at Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana. During her elementary school years, she became fascinated with putting words together and rearranging those same words to express different thoughts and feelings. Her parents (who taught her in the elementary grades), her husband, and her three sons all encouraged her to pursue her writing dreams. Moreover, the late Dr. Margaret Walker Alexander inspired her to write, and the late Professor Charles Tinkham motivated her to publish. She currently enjoys speaking to book clubs, schools, churches, and other social groups about writing. Ms. Walker cherishes having had the opportunity to teach English and social studies in McComb, Mississippi, and English and reading in Pine Ridge, South Dakota on an Indian reservation. In Gary, Indiana, she taught English for several years and counseled middle school students for 29 years.

Walker founded the Gary Writers’ Workshop, The Clinton Ink-Slingers Writers Group, and helped four writers to publish their works. The author comments that: “Writing is a gratifying art I truly love to share.”

She has six novels out, and has recently finished a seventh. Read more about her at her websitehttp://www.blueprintsofsirmichael.com/meet-jwalker.asp

L.R. Barrett-Durham self-published her first epic fantasy novel, Never Trust a Sorcerer, in September of 2011. She has published five books in her first year as an indie author.  While writing the second book to The Trust Series, Always Trust Your Honor, she met her coauthor E. G. Glover and began working on their paranormal romance series, The Fear Series. Book One, Fear the Beast Within, was finished in thirty-seven days and was published one day apart from Always Trust Your Honor. Book Two, Fear the Thirst Within, was published in May 2012.  Her newest novel, Book Three of The Trust Series, Forever Trust Your Aim, is fresh off the presses, being published September 4, 2012, just thirteen days shy of the one year mark.

A native of North Alabama, L R is not only an author, but also a freelance artist while she isn’t at her day job, being a Network Technician for one of the largest Credit Unions in Alabama.

E.G. Glover is new to the novel-writing scene with Fear the Beast Within, which was written and published with L R Barrett-Durham in January 2012. He flirted with idea of writing in high school by authoring various poems and short stories, but it wasn’t until recently that his dream of writing a novel became a reality.

Four short months later, he and L. R. Barrett-Durham published Book Two of The Fear Series entitled, Fear the Thirst Within. He is currently working on Fear the Emptiness Within, Book Three of The Fear Series, with Barrett-Durham.

This Alabama native’s hopes with this series are to prove that a romantic story can be told with a male’s point of view entwined, and still hold its romanticisms. Check their website at http://fearandtrust.freewebspace.com/ or chat with them on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/fearandtrust.

Glen Stripling, author of the science fiction murder mystery Chronosia, has been fascinated with the many aspects of science fiction for years. A native of Mississippi, Mr. Stripling was born in Jackson and currently resides in Pearl. A graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor’s of Science in geology, he developed a murder mystery which involved space travel, worm holes, and a look into the human condition. Immediately setting pen to paper, Mr. Stripling wrote the original manuscript of Chronosia while he “was stuck in the northwest part of the U.S. while his wife (a nurse) was working at a temporary assignment” (The Clarksdale Blues-Star, November 22, 2009). Still, he  knew relying on the science alone would not sell the book, so he made the characters come alive. After gathering opinion on the original manuscript, Mr. Stripling finally printed the murder mystery and it is now available.

Mr. Stripling lives with his wife Katherine and is currently working on Chronosia 2: The Fugitives. Always full of ideas, his research notes are gathered and he is ready to meet the next challenge.

Until the sequel is finished, familiarize yourself with the first book. Come to Cups Cafe!
