 PNWA Member Spotlight: 

Colleen Story

 


 

PNWA member and Idaho author Colleen M. Story's new book, Loreena’s Gift, was released on April 12, 2016, from Dzanc Books. This story was a finalist in the mainstream category of the PNWA 2012 literary contest. "An exciting debut that crosses fantasy and literary fiction, Loreena's Gift is a thought-provoking meditation on life and death and what ultimately lies beyond this world."  You can learn more on her website at http://colleenmstory.com.
