Local author Brooke Cox is having a book launch this Sunday, April 25, at 2 p.m. in the fellowship hall at Beaver Dam Baptist Church.
Cox was a finalist for a Selah Award for American Christian fiction writers with her debut effort “Deadly Doll.” That book has been re-released under the title “Until the Moon Rises: a Conniving Cousins Mystery.” She will also have her book “Dinosaur Eggs” available and will be holding a dinosaur egg hunt.
Cox, 56, is a Halls native and 1983 graduate of Halls High School. She is now retired from Home Federal Bank and plans to focus her attention on her writing.
“Stories have kind of become my life,” Cox said. “I have always loved to read.”
She explained that her writing style follows with her favorite type of reading, fast-paced adventure and fantasy stories. She also writes for Historic Union County online.
“If you like to write, it’s like a compulsion,” Cox said. “You can’t NOT do it.”
