Such was the wonderful author event I attended last week. My friend, Glenn Starkey, celebrated the publishing of his tenth book with a party at my hometown's delightful Gordon Street Tavern.
Glenn Starkey is a Vietnam veteran, a former Marine Corps Sergeant, a former Texas law enforcement officer, and a retired security manager for a global oil corporation. I first met him nine years ago when he came to my school as a mentor for the students there, though his wife has been a friend since I met her in third grade. Glenn's books cover a wide spectrum of genres, including the genres of historical fiction, thriller, young adult, science fiction, and nonfiction.
When we arrived at Gordon Street Tavern, Glenn was busy talking books with his fans.
The author's wife, Donna, and their grandson, Caleb, were busy ringing up book sales.
He graciously autographed copies all evening.
One man couldn't even wait to get home to start reading his book.
