Congratulations to local Huntsville Author, Joanne Galbraith (who uses the pseudonym, Jocelyn Adams) as she announces the release of her second novel in her Mortal Machine Series, called Midnight Dawn, published by Entangled Publishing, Embrace Imprint. Galbraith started writing this book during last year's Muskoka Novel Marathon, which was her third time participating in the marathon. The first book in her urban fantasy series, called Darkside Sun was partially set in Bracebridge and was released in March 2014, with the third one, Forever Dusk, scheduled for a February 2015 release.
Galbraith, a Gravenhurst High School Secretary, has several novella-length works and a dozen short stories published. Gravenhurst High School students study her short stories in their academic English class. Galbriath has made several personal appearances in the classroom to discuss the creative writing process with them. The students seem to be enthusiastic about writing.
As for the Muskoka Novel Marathon, Galbraith loves to participate in the event because it allows her to dedicate a full weekend of 72-hours directly to her creative writing passion. She said she is also happy to support the marathon, as it raises much-needed funds for the YMCA Muskoka/Simcoe Literacy Programs.
“My husband and I both work in the education system and we see kids go through the system and graduate high school, but they can’t read,” Galbraith said. “These programs are ones they can come back to, to learn to read. It is an awesome cause.”
“I absolutely love the marathon,” she said. “Writers are a unique group. We’re all kind of whacky in our own ways … when we get together, we kind of feel free to be ourselves.”
