Author Afternoon with Dr. Darin Brown
Saturday, February 9 at 1pm

We are thrilled to be hosting local author Darin Brown for an afternoon author talk and book signing for the second book in his Young Adult series The Master of Perceptions,  The Sound of Suffering.

In this adventure novel series, Hunter Miller, the son of a brilliant geneticist, learns to use his talents as he navigates childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Facing trials and tribulations, he overcomes adversity with the help of several friends along the way. His path is not straightforward, and he doesn’t always take the high road, but after a few pitfalls, he hones his unique skills and becomes The Master of Perceptions.

Hunter Miller has a secret.

He can read and manipulate the auras that surround everyone.

Having used his talent to dethrone the reigning school bully, thirteen-year old Hunter finds himself thrust into a new quest after hearing screams in the aura of a teacher.  Unable to resist this powerful siren song, he investigates—despite warnings from his family and friends. It nearly costs him everything.

Upon discovering the truth, Hunter seeks assistance in his mission to defeat his formidable adversary. As the situation escalates, the adolescent hero ultimately realizes that despite the risks, he must fight this battle alone.

In this second installment of The Master of Perceptions series, can Hunter use his extraordinary powers to rescue an innocent woman without losing himself in the process?

Darin C. Brown grew up in upstate New York, the youngest of seven children. Darin saved lives as an ER doctor in New Hampshire and Maine for nearly twenty years. With a bachelor’s degree in engineering physics and a master’s degree in biomedical engineering from Cornell, along with a PhD in biophysics from the University of Illinois, he is uniquely qualified to create Hunter Miller, the protagonist in The Master of Perceptions Series. When not writing, he directs Murder Mystery Dinner Theater, and acts with a local theater company. A chess player, martial artist, piano enthusiast, and former All-American runner, he still competes at the national level in master’s track. He currently resides in the White Mountains of New Hampshire with his wife, Dr. Sandra Brown, and their many pets.

Lisa Gardner International Book Launch Party   Lisa Gardner International Book Launch Party
Monday, February 18, 2019 7pm
Location: Theater in the Wood, Intervale, NH

Pre-Order this book now

Mark your calendars! It’s that time of year again, when we look forward to a new thriller by award-winning author, and Valley resident, Lisa Gardner. NEVER TELL is the new book and it comes out on Tuesday, February 19. The first place to see Lisa and get your signed copy is the night before at the White Birch Books International Book Launch Party, right here in North Conway.

Lisa Gardner, a #1 New York Times bestselling thriller novelist, began her career in food service, but after catching her hair on fire numerous times, she took the hint and focused on writing instead. A self-described research junkie, she turned her interest in police procedure and criminal minds into a streak of internationally acclaimed suspense novels.

A man is dead, shot three times in his home office. But his computer has been shot twelve times, and when the cops arrive, his pregnant wife is holding the gun.
D.D. Warren arrives on the scene and recognizes the woman--Evie Carter--from a case many years back. Evie's father was killed in a shooting that was ruled an accident. But for D.D., two coincidental murders is too many.
Flora Dane sees the murder of Conrad Carter on the TV news and immediately knows his face. She remembers a night when she was still a victim--a hostage--and her captor knew this man. Overcome with guilt that she never tracked him down, Flora is now determined to learn the truth of Conrad's murder.
But D.D. and Flora are about to discover that in this case the truth is a devilishly elusive thing. As layer by layer they peel away the half-truths and outright lies, they wonder: How many secrets can one family have?
Lisa lives in Mt. Washington Valley where she spends her time with an assortment of canine companions. When not writing, she loves to hike, garden, snowshoe and play cribbage.

Some women are born wild. Some are made.
THE LAST WOMAN IN THE FOREST is a riveting and powerful thriller about a woman whose greatest threat could be the man she loves.…

Marian Engström has found her true calling: working with rescue dogs to help protect endangered wildlife. Her first assignment takes her to northern Alberta where she falls in love with her mentor, the daring and brilliant Tate. While separated from each other on another assignment, Marian is shattered to learn of Tate’s tragic death. Worse still is the aftermath in which she discovers disturbing inconsistencies about Tate’s life and begins to wonder if the man she loved could have been responsible for the unsolved murders of at least four women.

Hoping to clear Tate’s name, Marian reaches out to a retired forensic profiler who’s been haunted by the open cases. But as Marian relives her relationship with Tate and circles ever closer to the truth, evil stalks her every move.

Diane Les Becquets is a volunteer at Back in the Saddle Equine Therapy Center and an avid outdoors woman, enjoying archery, bicycling, snowshoeing, swimming, and backpacking with her dog, Izzy. Before moving to New Hampshire, where she now resides with her husband, she lived in a small ranching town in Northwestern Colorado for almost fourteen years, raising her three sons.

The Impossible Climb  

Author Evening with Mark Synnott
Wednesday, March 20 at 7pm
Jackson Public Library, Jackson, NH

Join us at the Jackson Public Library for a great author talk with local author, Mark Synnott, and his book The Impossible Climb, which we will be selling that night.

One slip, one false move, one missed toehold and you're dead.

On June 3rd 2017 veteran adventure journalist and professional climber Mark Synnott was in Yosemite to witness something that only a handful of people knew was about to occur: the most famous climber in the world, Alex Honnold, was going to attempt to summit one of the world's most challenging ascents, a route called Freerider on the notorious rock formation El Capitan. It is a climb extraordinarily dangerous and difficult, and yet Honnold was going to do it 'free solo'. Meaning no help. No climbing partner. No equipment. No rope. Where a single small mistake would mean certain death. To most, it would be an insane proposition. But most are not Alex Honnold, and few know this better than Mark Synnott, which is why National Geographic sent him there to cover the story.

Indeed, to summit El Cap free solo was a feat likened to Neil Armstrong first walking on the moon.

In The Impossible Climb, Mark Synnott uses his own career as a professional climber, its intersection with that of Alex Honnold and the lead-up to Honnold's historic ascent, to paint a insider portrait of the elite climbing community, exploring what motivates them, the paradoxical drive to keep the sport pure and at the same time to fund climbs, and the role that awareness of mortality plays in the endeavour. We watch through Mark's eyes as Alex plots, trains and attempts his heart-stopping free-solo ascent. Ultimately this is a story not only about climbing but about what makes us human, how we respond to fear and our drive to transcend the inevitability of death.

He is a frequent contributor to National Geographic magazine and has written for Outside, Men’s Journal, Rock and Ice, and Climbing.
