Hilton Head Island, SC -- A private reception and book-signing will be held on April 17, 2011 at 4 pm to introduce Mr. Clare Adkin, noted historic fiction author. Refreshments and book copies will be available at the signing. To attend the Hilton Head Island reception for Mr. Adkin, please contact email@example.com.
Mr. Adkin first received national and international acclaimed for his commissioned book, BROTHER BENJAMIN (1990). Like Brother Benjamin, QUIET GUILT is set in Michigan. A year out of high school and still working in his family’s apple orchard, Quiet Guilt’s main character, Chuck, yearns for a life of adventure. Suddenly as an invitation to his prayers, he is offered the job of reporting a high profile murder. QUIET GUILT has the reader in suspense as the journey with Chuck set in the Depression Era in small town America unfolds.
Clare Adkin was raised on a fruit farm in Allegan County, Michigan. After graduating from Michigan State University with a degree in history, he embarked upon a 38 year career in teaching and coaching. He has been thinking about Mary Anne Starr, the subject of QUIET GUILT, since he discovered her while doing research for his first book, Brother Benjamin. True to mantra, “History is interpretation, the essence of which is research and writing.” Adkin and his wife Sally make their home in Durham, North Carolina.
