Local authors, Sandi Wright, Roberta Parry, Maxine Davenport, Elaine Pinkerton and Fiona Simon will be offering their books for sell at the Homegrown Authors table on Tuesday, May 2, when the Santa Fe Farmers Market opens for the summer. This is the sixth year the New Mexico Book Association has sponsored a successful table open to all its members.

A table filled with books is a pleasant surprise to many tourists who visit Santa Fe in the summer. For them, it’s a great place to pick up last minute local gifts for people back home, or  to read on the airplane going home. Many local residents also like the idea of meeting the authors and getting an autographed book, unavailable in book stores.

Drop by the table while you’re at the Market supporting our farmers and our writing community.

Welcome to my world of storytelling, which began with SATURDAY MATINEE, set in Oklahoma during the Great Depression, then moves through the sixties to MURDER TIMES TWO, when women began to fight for equal rights in the workplace and sought an equal and compatible sexual relationship with men. My third book, REBEL ON HORSEBACK, celebrates a daughter’s inheritance of the family’s land grant in northern New Mexico, which included the challenging problems with migrant workers, rustlers, an undercover agent looking for drug dealers, and a persistent suitor who challenges her single status. Finally, my fourth book, LOVE IS A LEGAL AFFAIR, introduces a woman lawyer who is drawn into New Mexico’s current religious and political battles to expose child abusers, highlighted by the Catholic Church’s practice of protecting priests from criminal charges.
