Author Jessi Houtz with The Warden of Aneurin (May 27)
Local author Jessi Houtz will be at The Learned Owl Book Shop on Saturday, May 27th, from 1 to 3 p.m. with her fantasy novel "The Warden of Aneurin".
Darren Hull is too quiet to be a leader, too humble to be a hero, and too scared to be a savior. When his helicopter crashes in Aneurin, the city's mysterious inhabitants expect him to be all these things - and more. Aneurin is a city for souls, the final stage in the human life cycle. Darren's ancient connection with the city's founder drags him unwittingly into a power struggle for control of life on Earth. To survive, Darren must discover who he is and who he once was. He must find the faith he didn't know he was searching for.
Jessi Houtz was born in 1990 in a small Ohio town. She graduated magna cum laude from Kent State University with degrees in English and the classics, and continues to cultivate her love of language, fantasy, and history through writing. She is an avid baseball fan and spends much of her free time cheering on the Cleveland Indians. Houtz remains close to her family and friends in northeast Ohio and works at a medical supply company.
