Takoma Park Author Adam Brookes will talk about his espionage thriller, Night Heron, the move from journalism to fiction writing, the process of writing a first novel, the editing and publication process as experienced by a debut author, and the business of writing a sequel.
The novel draws on Brookes' years as a BBC News correspondent, reporting from China, Indonesia, and the United States.
Writing in The Washington Post, reviewer Patrick Anderson praised Night Heron as a "top-notch thriller" with a "suspenseful, persuasive story.".
Copies of Night Heron will be available for purchase and signing by the author.
