Local Author M.H. Healy Will Speak Saturday

Hear from Featured Authors on Saturday, June 4, 2016

At the Mockville, NC Library, 371 N. Main Street, Mocksville NC 27028. Refreshments from 10-10:30 am and then Author Mark Eley will kick off our AuthorTalk!


Mark Eley’s pen name is M.H. Healy. He tells us he chose his pen name because, quite simply, everyone mistakes his last name “Eley” for “Healy” anyway! So M.H. Healy has been his unintentional alias for a while.

He will bring antique weaponry to show us and tell us about life with his family in Clemmons, as well as discussing the first in his series of AF novels about Kwame Obasanjo, an African teen from Senegal who raised by Jesuits but thrown into slavery by a vicious captain. His only escape, joining the pirates who raid his plantation!

You can follow him at Facebook or visit his author page, for more information about his detailed research into the history of pirates and weapons.

The book from the series, Pirate Straits, is Oath of Blood and is available at Amazon, and from the Publisher, Library Tales. If you enjoy drama, adventure and action (who doesn’t) then you should check out, Oath of Blood.

Refreshments served at 10 am and then Mark will speak at 10:30 am this Saturday.

The AuthorTalk Series is sponsored by the Friends of Davie County Public Library. We hope to visit with you and enjoy hearing from a terrific variety of talented North Carolina authors.
