Hats Off!

Good news from our members!

The North Carolina Writers' Network is happy to announce good news from our members.

Hats Off! to Christine Moughamian whose essay "Enchanted Romance" appears in the December issue of Salt Magazine. Christine is an award-winning memoirst and the North Carolina Writers' Network regional rep for the Cape Fear Region.

 

Hats Off! to June Guralnick: selections from her play Birds of a Feather: a Comedy about De-Extinction appear in two new anthologies,The Best Men's Stage Monologues and The Best Women's Stage Monologues, both edited by Lawrence Harbison and published by Smith and Kraus. Birds of a Feather is a madcap romp about a time-travelling scientist who journeys a century into the past to New York City, circa 1912. His mission? To save the passenger pigeon. The play wrestles, in a screwball comedy kind of way (Bringing Up Baby meets Doctor Who), with the intersection of two unlikely bedfellows: the early conservation movement and the suffragist struggle. Add to the mayhem social satire, slapstick humor, and an eccentric family of radical women and the result is a comedic love story that evokes laughter on women’s changing roles while provoking more serious reflection on the nature of progress and the world’s disappearing species.

 

Hats Off! to Charley Pearson who revealed the cover for his next novel, Scourge, forthcoming in August, 2018.

In this medical thriller, financially independent, biochemistry genius Stacy Romani grows up off the grid, while her Roma family takes advantage of her knowledge for their own gain.

Watching his family farm struggle, and traumatized by mass slaughter, Aatos Pires wants to heal animals but gets seduced by industry and goes to work for a big pharmaceutical company.

When Aatos’ co-worker Trinity creates a deadly doomsday virus, it puts the world population in jeopardy as it spreads exponentially. . .with no cure in sight.

Stacy and Aatos work alone to find a cure, as the CDC and FBI close in. Will they find a way to stop the plague or will it be the end of humanity?
