Meet H. D. Pelton, September’s Author Spotlight

I’m happy to introduce H.D. Pelton as Ozarks Maven’s September Author Spotlight. We belong to Ozarks Writers League together. He stepped up and helped me when I really needed a hand with one of our conferences last year. I don’t know what I would’ve done without him.

H.D. is a wonderful person who was introduced to me by our mutual friend, Bonnie, who is an amazing lady so full of love and encouragement that you can’t help but adore her. When she told me that I needed to meet him, I knew he was special.

I’ve enjoyed every visit I’ve had with H.D., and I’m so excited to be introducing him to you, my dear readers. I’ll be posting his interview on Thursday, September 3, 2020, so be sure to check back for his interesting answers to my probing questions.

Author H. D. Pelton grew up in Benton, Arkansas, where he and his wife Paula currently reside. As a youth, his imagination was fired by works of writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs and Jack London, sparking a secret passion to write. This passion has resulted in short stories sprinkled through a number of anthologies and magazine publications. Current projects include novels of historical and contemporary fiction. His new book is titled WHERE LIGHT NO LONGER SHINES.

As mentioned his his bio, H.D. Pelton recently released his first book, Where Light No Longer Shines, and I’m elated for him. I can imagine how excited he was when he held his book in his hands for the first time.

I bought a Kindle copy because I won’t be seeing him for a few months, and I’m anxious to read this wonderful book. I plan to buy a hard copy directly from H.D., and I’m looking forward to seeing the flush of pride cross his face while he signs it for me.

Here’s the blurb from the back of Where Light No Longer Shines:

Wanderlust entices Patrick O’Brien to leave his native Ireland. He arrives in America with his young bride and decides to seek his fortune in the rugged mountains of the Arkansas Territory. Full of dreams he begins building a happy life for his growing family, but the Ranklins have other plans. The O’Brien clan will suffer a decade of murder and pain that will crack Patrick’s soul like the fractured rocks of the Ozark Mountains.

Doesn’t that sound intriguing? I hope to have some time to curl up in a quiet place where I can really enjoy Where Light No Longer Shines on my upcoming vacation.

Until we meet again, stay safe and healthy, my friends!
