From his website:

American astronomers discover an asteroid made entirely of gold. One of the scientists leaks the story to a reporter. U.S. President Margaret Mann wants NASA to mine the asteroid as a means of paying off the national debt. England and France remind the president of the Space Treaties of 1968 and 1975, which forbid any one nation from benefiting from a heavenly body that is considered valuable. At the same time, North Korea suddenly develops an interest in reunification talks with South Korea and the United States.

Wayne is a U.S. Army veteran whose wife Claudia Adams, will also speak Saturday about her booklet highlighting how we can help victims of domestic abuse, “Saving My Sister”.

Claudia Adams’ booklet details the dramatic events of her life and the peace she found. The booklet includes steps that those who are experiencing domestic abuse can take to escape.

For information about both authors’ materials you can email them at or give them a call at 910-428-9779.

Wayne’s book listing is available at his website along with information on how to purchase them online if you can’t make it to our author’s event this weekend.

Hear About the Writing of A Story Each Day

Meet Author Nicholas Sailer

This award-winning writer/filmmaker is the author of A Story Each Day, a collection of 365 short stories, written one each day for an entire year.

AT Nick Sailer


This young author and artist has a definitive perspective on the role of stories in our lives and you will want to hear more about why he decided to write a story each day!

A story isn’t just a nice collection of pretend people and made up places. A story isn’t just a retelling of an old adventure. A story isn’t just a fun thing to tell around a campfire, or a relaxing thing to read before you go to bed at night. A story is a dangerous and provoking path, which leads us always to see truth more vividly.~ Nicholas Sailer, from his website

Read more from him and pick up an e-copy of his book at his website. Visit with him on Saturday June 4, 2016 at Davie County Library, 371 N. Main St., Mocksville NC 27028 from 10 am -12:30 pm.

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.
