Local author J.P. McLean to sign book

McLean’s debut novel, the first in a trilogy, is set in coastal British Columbia

Local author J.P. McLean will sign copies of her new book, The Gift: Awakening, at Abraxas Books on Denman Island this Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.

McLean’s debut novel, the first in a trilogy, is set in coastal British Columbia. The Gift: Awakening follows the heroic journey of a young woman in her quest to overcome the burden of an extraordinary gift and find her unique place in the world.

Emelynn Taylor’s gift, bestowed unceremoniously and unbidden, thrust her into a vortex of mystery, wonder and intrigue that promise to change her — and her world — forever.

This contemporary thriller will appeal to adult audiences who enjoy the urban fantasy genre.

“The Gift was a joy to write,” says McLean. “There’s nothing quite like life-threatening conspiracies, hidden agendas and intense action sequences to fire the creative synapses.”

Meet Jo-Anne (J.P.) McLean in person at Abraxas Books, 1071 Northwest Rd. on Denman Island this Saturday.
