Filed under: ,
July 26, 2016 - Kawartha Lakes Library proudly presents an evening with local authors Virginia Winters, Ian Rogers, Pauline Kiely and Sara Walker on Thursday August 18 at 7:00 pm at the Lindsay branch.

Join us in the Meeting Room (lower level) to learn more about the authors’ writing experiences and to hear their stories. There will be an opportunity to talk with the authors, ask questions and enjoy light refreshments.

Virginia Winters is a writer and retired paediatrician. She was born in Arnprior and educated at Queen's University. Her first novel, Murderous Roots, was published in 2008 and was followed by three more novels in the Dangerous Journeys series (The Facepainter Murders, 2009, No Motive for Murder, 2012 and The Child on the Terrace, 2015). She also writes short stories which have been published by various online and print publications.

Ian Rogers is the award-winning author of the dark fiction collection Every House Is Haunted. His novelette, “The House on Ashley Avenue,” was a finalist for the Shirley Jackson Award and has been optioned for television by Universal Cable Productions. He is also the author of SuperNOIRtural Tales, a collection of stories featuring supernatural detective Felix Renn. Ian lives with his wife in Peterborough. For more information, visit

Pauline Kiely has been a student of creative writing her entire adult life. To date she has been published nationally in Today’s Bride, O’Canada Magazine, and Horse and Country. She is the author of a children’s book titled Santa and the Whippersnapper, which is the story of a spunky little girl who wishes for a pony for Christmas.  Fittingly, on St. Patrick’s Day of 2012 Pauline launched her first full length book titled, No Poverty Between the Sheets, a memoir of her large family which is half Irish and half French Canadian.

Sara Walker, author of Adrenaline Rush and Catching a Sorcerer, has recently published a collection of stories by eight local authors including one of her own. Kawartha Lakes Stories features stories by Vivienne Barker, Jean Booker, Clint Cummings, Stefan Ellery, Altaire Gural, Cathy Hamill-Hill, Lori Rowsell and Tiffany Short.  All the stories are set in Kawartha Lakes and come in many different styles. Sara is a member of the Kawartha Lakes Circle of Writers and has been writing for many years. She works at the Lindsay branch of Kawartha Lakes Library.
