Book Signing! Reading! Fun!

I’m very excited about participating in the upcoming Book Blizzard, the San Luis Valley Holiday Book Fair, Friday, December 2 at 5 PM – 8 PM in the Nielsen Library at Adams State University, 208 Edgemont Blvd, Alamosa, Colorado

I will have some copies of each of my novels, Martin of Gfenn, Savior, and The Brothers Path for sale and to sign. During the evening, I’ll read from The Brothers Path, a story that looks at the events of the Protestant Reformation and their effect on an ordinary Swiss family, the Schneebelis.

Readers have said of The Brothers Path:

“I met the Schneebelis and fell in love with each and every one of them. I read it straight through…did not cook or do dishes. I could not put it down till I was done, though I tried several times.” Meredith Magliery

“Kennedy’s strong sense of a people as she realistically and compellingly paints a portrait of a time with her dialogue, historical events and individuals—including Heinrich Schneebeli, her own ancestor—mingled with those of her imagination, produces a greater understanding of what it was to experience life in a dangerously divided society.” Lisl Zlitni

It will be a chance for me — and everyone! — to meet other local authors.

Published by Martha Kennedy

Martha Kennedy's most recent work -- As a Baby Duck Listens to Thunder -- tells about her experiences as a Foreign Expert in English in the People's Republic of China in 1982/83. It's a love story to China, to teaching and to adventure. She has published four works of historical fiction. Her first novel, Martin of Gfenn, was awarded the Editor’s Choice by the Historical Novel Society Indie Review, the BRAG Medallion from IndieBRAG in 2015, and, in 2017, was named to the shortlist​ for the Chaucer Award from Chanticleer Reviews. Her other novels, Savior, The Brothers Path, and The Price form a loose series, looking at the experiences of the same family, Savior in the 13th century during the Crusades, The Brothers Path looks at the experiences of six brothers in the 16th during the Protestant Reformation and The Price brings the family to America in 1743. All three novels of the trilogy are IndieBRAG Honorees. Kennedy has also published a memoir entitled My Everest which is a compilation of stories about her years of trail hiking in the "wilderness" around San Diego with her dogs. My Everest is also an IndieBRAG honoree. Kennedy has also published many short-stories and articles in a variety of publications from the Denver Post to the Business Communications Quarterly. For many years she lived in the San Diego area. She now lives in Colorado, in Monte Vista, a small town in the San Luis Valley that she thinks might be Heaven.
