Author of paranormal, horror stories to discuss new book in Greensburg
Ronald Murphy Jr., who has penned books on the paranormal and strange creatures, will discuss and sign his new book, “On Faeries,” at Craftique Collections, 770 E. Pittsburgh St., Greensburg.
The 1-3:30 p.m. July 13 event is free and open to the public.
A regional author, Murphy will address fairies, the stuff of legend and many countries’ folklore, whether they are good or bad and where they come from, according to sponsoring Ligonier Valley Writers.
Refreshments will be served.
An author of paranormal and horror stories, Murphy’s fiction, essays and poetry have been published in many editions of the Ligonier Valley Writer’s annual literary magazine, “The Loyalhanna Review.”
The book signing is part of the long-running series “Meet Your Local Authors,” presented by Ligonier Valley Writers and Craftique in the Café at Craftique.
Murphy’s books, along with those of other local authors, are sold in the Craftique Book Nook.
The event may spark story ideas for the Ligonier Valley Writers’ Flash Fiction Contest, planners state, noting this year’s topic is elves and fairies. Submission deadline is Aug. 15.
The top three winners receive cash prizes; three honorable mentions receive professional editing and publication.
