"This is a woman going places. This is a twinkling star on the rise." Melissa, Gettysburg Times
Local mystery author T.J. Perkins excitedly dished the news of her recent book signing at Honda Acres on Sept. 25. "The turnout went fairly well, especially with Honda Acres being in such an isolated spot," she excitedly added, "Several adults expressed a great interest in my series especially because theyíve heard that my past books do not promote violence and I never ever use bad language and that my storytelling style is reminiscent of Nancy Drew books." Currently, her series is defined as "Nancy Drew meets Agatha Christie." The first two books in her Kim and Kelly mystery series have only been on bookshelves for a month, so that is all the more reason for T.J.'s bubbling happiness since her first two books have been reviewed for the Agatha and Edgar literary awards.This is definitely a moment to celebrate. One reviewer commented, "If you donít read T.J. Perkinís books you will be missing out on an enjoyment in reading. This is a very good story for children and adults also." T.J. Perkins is visiting Littlestown in the near future on Nov. 6 at Fireside Books. She will have copies of her new books available for purchase and she is always eager to talk with interested readers young and old. When I first meant with T.J. Perkins almost a year ago my first impression was, "This is a woman going places. This is a twinkling star on the rise." I am overcome with joy that her puzzle is now fitting together and her accomplishments add another step to her climbing staircase. She is a writer not to miss. Melissa, Gettysburg Times.
