QUARTZSITE - Come and meet some new authors at the annual Authors' Fair at Readers' Oasis Bookstore in Quartzsite. Many authors from all over the country come each year to meet each other and sign and sell books to readers of any type of books.

This is the 6th year of the Fair, and from Jan. 1 to Feb. 28 (sometimes longer), there will be many new authors coming every week. All authors are welcome to set up a table at the Fair at no cost.

One of the authors who has been coming for five years is Stu Campbell, from Granby, Colo. He is a cowboy humorist who has written six books now on his experiences working on ranches and dude ranches for much of his life.

His short stories are very funny and his personality is that of a gentleman cowboy. His books include Horsing around a lot, Horsing around the dudes, Humor around Horses, Comedy in the Corral, More humor around horses, and his new book, You can't be serious. He will also be doing a book signing at the Town Library on Jan. 24.

Also back again this year is Ceil Stetson, author of her mother and dad's memoirs from World War II when they were both in the service and could only talk to each other through letters. Her book, Dear Sergeant Honey, is a wonderful accounting of those days through the eyes of a husband and wife who were serving their country.

Joe Gerard is also back with his two novels, Flight from Torkura and Out of Focus. Gerard has been here for the past several years, missing last year, but back again with his great adventure stories.

Here for the second year is Sandra Moore Bernsen, who has suffered the loss of two of her children and her husband, and she has written a very emotional but uplifting accounting of her story called Free my Heart of Grief to Love. It is a very special story that is both heartwarming and full of hope.

Two new authors have been here this week and will be here for awhile. Elaine Brooks Held, wrote Alaska Our Way - an accounting of her and her husband's traveling for 16 years in Alaska every May through Sept. to fish for salmon. She also wrote a biography of her great, great grandfather, Calvin Many Wolves Potter, who ran away at age 12 from Pennsylvania to Minnesota, where he was taken in by Indians when he was close to death. They nursed him back to health and he was adopted by them and lived with them until he died.

Claudia and Alan Heller have a great new book out about their travels along the Mother Road - Life on Route 66. They traveled the whole road and give their personal accounts of this great experience.

Other authors who will be coming this month include Debbie Hilbish from Quartzsite, who has written two books of poetry, Bits and Pieces, and Lifes dream collisions. She also has made some beautiful cards from her illustrations in the books. Darlene Miller, who wrote RV Chuckholes and Chuckles, and More RV Chuckholes and Chuckles will also be coming back.

Come on down and meet some of these great authors and get your books signed. The authors are there from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (sometimes later) and the fair is open every day of the week. For more info, call Reader's Oasis Bookstore at 928-927-6551.
