Spotlight and Giveaway: Evening in the Yellow Wood

A few weeks ago, we featured a novel by an author named Laura Kemp. At the time, we accidentally tagged a different Laura Kemp. The two met on our Facebook page and we had a good laugh over the confusion. This time around, we're featuring the debut novel of the Laura Kemp we accidentally tagged last time. It's called Evening in the Yellow Wood and it sounds intriguing! It also sounds like there's an identity confusion involved. Laura has one signed copy to give away!

Abandoned by an eccentric father on the eve of her twelfth birthday, Justine Cook has lived with her fair share of unanswered questions. Now, ten years later, she leaves her life in southern Michigan and heads north to the mysterious town of Lantern Creek after seeing his picture in a local newspaper. Once there, she discovers her father has been living a double life and meets the autistic half-brother she never knew- a young man who is mute but able to read her mind. 

When a local girl who looks like Justine is murdered, she joins forces with sheriff's deputy Dylan Locke to capture the killer. But the more they dig for clues to the past, the closer they come to discovering a secret someone will kill to protect. Justine begins to show signs of supernatural power and faces her greatest challenge when she confronts an immortal enemy that has hunted her family for generations.

Laura Kemp is a teacher who loves to write about her home state of Michigan. Her debut novel Evening in the Yellow Wood was released in December of 2018 by Pandamoon Publishing. She has a B.A. in Creative Writing from Western Michigan University where she studied under Stuart Dybek, and has had her short fiction and poetry published in Chicken Soup for the Soul, Word Riot, Tonopalah Review, SaLit and SLAB-Sound and Literary Art Book. Her short story The Pursuit of Happiness was a finalist in WMU's Trial Balloon Fiction Contest.. When not writing, Laura likes to hike, swim, read, and perform with her Celtic band, Si Bhaeg Si Mohr. She also likes spending time with her husband and four children.
