BYRON, Ill. — Hailey’s Winery in Byron will host a book signing event for local author Judi Coltman from 6 to 8 p.m., Friday, Sept. 9.
The recently-released thriller In the Name of the Father is Coltman’s second book and is getting stellar reviews.
A departure from her first book, a collection of humorous essays, In the Name of the Father is a page-turner murder mystery. Pre-release reviews have called it “a coming-of-age murder thriller” laced with intrigue, fear and even redemption.
Coltman’s first book, Is It Just Me? or Is Everyone a Little Nuts! has consistently been ranked in Amazon’s Top 10 in the Humor genre.
Having written for both local and national publications as well as creating a children’s newsletter that was distributed in the school district locally, Coltman acknowledges that fiction is her favorite form of writing.
“Many people are expecting more humor, but this story had to be told. It is really a far better book,” says Coltman of her latest novel.
Hailey’s Winery is at 114 S. Franklin, Byron. A limited number of both of Coltman’s books will be available. To pre-order and be guaranteed a book, e-mail Coltman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
