An author known for her books of "romantic comedy with a southern kick" will visit Bedford, Ky., next week.
Kentucky author LuAnn McLane will speak at the Trimble County Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday. McLane will talk about her books during her visit to the library, as well as her collaboration with Wynonna Judd on a 2011 novel, "Restless Heart."
She will be available for book signings following the discussion.
McLane, of Florence, Ky., knew she wanted to be a writer at a young age and began taking creative writing classes in high school and college, her website said. In the mid-1980s, McLane worked as a staff reporter, wrote other human-interest pieces for several local newspapers and had an award-winning column in the Kenton County Recorder.
Still, she wanted to get back to the fiction side of writing.
Her writing career grew after a mid-life crisis that made her conquer fears of the computer and landed her in the romance writing genre, she said.
McLane currently writes for Signet Eclipse, an imprint of New American Library. Her work can also be found in eHarlequin romance and Woman's World Magazine.
Her works include "Dark Roots and Cowboy Boots," "Dancing Shoes and Honky Tonk Blues," "Redneck Cinderella" and "He's No Prince Charming."
In 2011, McLane launched the first book in her Cricket Creek series. The series explores the hardships of a struggling economy and a town that refuses to give up. Books in the series include "Playing for Keeps," "Pitch Perfect," "Moonlight Kiss" and "Catch of a Lifetime" and "Whisper's Edge."
The sixth book of the series, "Wildflower Wedding," will be released next year.
McLane's writing also has been featured in a collection of Christmas stories, "Christmas on Main Street."
Advanced registration for the event is suggested. McLane has offered a free copy of one of her books to the first 20 people to register for the discussion and book signing. Call the Trimble County Public Library at (502) 255-7362 to register.
