Emerge – LeeAnn McLennan
June 13, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us to celebrate the release of Emerge, the third book in the Supernormal Legacy series from local author LeeAnn McLennan.
She has badass, monster-fighting superpowers. They may be the death of her.
When Olivia Woodson Brighthall set out to rescue Benjamin Hallowfield, she didn’t expect to get herself and her friends captured. She wakes up in the worst place imaginable, Mountain of Ash’s lair, where her traitorous cousin Emma introduces Olivia to Isaac Milton. When Isaac can’t persuade Olivia to join Mountain of Ash, he discloses a plan to use her powers against her will to further his evil plan to destroy all normals.
Can Olivia emerge from her captivity, rescue her friends and Ben, and stop Mountain of Ash? Or will she be trapped in a nightmare of Isaac’s making?
Growing up in Fort Worth, Texas, LeeAnn Elwood McLennan was always looking for any opportunity to read – under the covers in bed, in the car, and in class using the book hidden in the textbook trick. When her father introduced her to sci-fi/fantasy through a book of short stories from Astounding Stories, the possibilities in every word captivated her interest and her daydreams involved other worlds, magical powers and time travel.
Despite graduating from Clemson University with a degree in English, LeeAnn has spent her career working in computer engineering related fields. LeeAnn lives in Portland, OR with her husband, Andy, and three cats (number of cats subject to change at any moment). Visit her at lemwritesstories.com
