Vroman’s Local Author Day featuring Treveal C.W. Lynch, Michael Nolan, and Brian Carmody

Local Author Day Wednesday December 4th at 7pm

Treveal C.W. Lynch presents and signs WHAT Is Enough

God did not intend for us to live this way.  Life is beyond hectic and the daily grind is exhausting. We're all feeling the pressure to keep up, asking ourselves, "Have I done enough? Do I have enough? Am I good enough? Am I, enough - WHAT, Is Enough"?  The struggle to find the elusive work-life balance that is always just beyond our reach, is intense. And for most of us, true self-care, both physical and spiritual, takes a back seat.  In this process, we get so lost in the things we believe we need to buy, achieve, and produce that we forget WHAT truly matters.  What Is Enough guides readers to understand - "The greatest thing you will ever become is accepting of WHAT you already ARE."

Michael Nolan presents and signs A Rat Catcher’s Guide to Creative Inspiration

My name is Mike Nolan and I want to teach you how to capture that elusive critter called "creative inspiration." What are my credentials? Did I graduate from a prestigious university or paint the Mona Lisa? Nope. I learned about creativity by catching rats and writing newspaper ads for my pest control company. Hey, Leonardo da Vinci, I'd like to see you do that.

Brian Carmody presents and signs Hellish Beasts

On a colonial village field trip, Mike was attacked by a deranged candle-maker and his "buddy" Trent fled, to his undying shame. As adults, screenwriter Trent runs into professor turned soldier Mike when they stumble upon a preternaturally dead cat in the library. Mike believes there's one sinister force behind this and other strange, inexplicable incidents- and he's taking reluctant Trent along for the investigation. Meanwhile, Trent begins to wonder if Lilith, his alluring and inscrutable new girlfriend, may be demonic herself- or if that's just his paranoid Catholic guilt. Dan Wakefield's Going All The Way meets True Detective, Hellish Beasts is an idiosyncratic, darkly humorous, and introspective Horror Noir. With an insider's appreciation for the Los Angeles landscape, this is a serious examination of the duty of friendship, the burden of guilt, the uncertainty of a devout Catholic in modern dating, and the struggle of leaving your 20s behind.
