Local Author Returns on Book Tour
Novelist Ann Lee (Fetterman) Miller, in town this week on book tour, slowed down long enough to discuss her New Smyrna Beach-based story, Avra’s God.
Avra’s God, like her other three titles focuses on the early adult years of the twenties. “I find this time period rife with passion. This is when people discover what they’re going to do with their lives, who they’re going to do it with, and why.”
New Smyrna Beach High School teacher John Scrivano found Miller recently on the internet while searching for local authors for his honors English class. He reminded her of the lime green tux he wore as her prom date. Ms. Miller laughed and told him she didn’t remember because she’s colorblind. But she immortalized the thirty-second lifespan of Scrivano’s air band—think imaginary instruments—in Avra’s God. Scrivano’s talent show “band” included his and Ms. Miller’s 1976 classmates James Knox, pastor of the Bible Baptist Church of Deland; Orlando attorney Eric Bensen, and Kyle Avery, US postal worker in Ft. Worth, Texas.
Avra’s God features a fictional New Smyrna Beach rock band staffed by Daytona State College students who play lead guitar, vocals, drums, and keyboard while churning out drama.
The books are available in e-book formats and paperback on Amazon and most online bookstores. Over 80,000 copies of her debut novel, Kicking Eternity have been downloaded from Amazon. More information is available here.
Miller is also presenting a Teen Fiction Writing Workshop at Atlantic Center for the Arts, Saturday, April 20, 2-4:00 p.m.
Participants will learn how to plot their own stories and produce polished work. Cost is $20, and each teen will receive a free e-copy of one of Miller’s novels. There is a limit of 60 people.
