Author Ken Mercer

Dear Blog readers that are in Portland tomorrow, 
You are invited to see writer, Ken Mercer

Ken started his career in advertising, but could not shake the urge to be doing " real" writing. Back in the early 90s, he wrote his first book, a private eye novel then later ended up burning it. Years later while on an Independence Day trip with his family to a small town in rural Northern California, he got the idea for another book that would eventually become Slow Fire. He sat down and began to write it that September, and worked on it for almost four years. 

Please join us while Ken talks about his journey.
