Victoria Korson, a Klamath Falls author, reads from her recently published novel “The Crooked Road Home,” on Saturday, December 6th at 2:00 p.m. in the Brooks Room of the Bend Public Library.
Korson started writing her first novel at the age of 9. Inspired by her favorite Nancy Drew stories, Korson never completed the story. Finding time to write has always been hard for Korson, who in addition to raising two sons, has worked as a computer programmer, a dorm director and teacher. Korson says “there is no right time write, just the time your have.”
“The Crooked Road Home,” first began taking shape in 1997. The main character, Vivian Lucille, a pregnant teen on her way to Hollywood, is stranded in Abilaso, Texas when the bus leaves the rest stop without her. In Abilaso Vivian meets a cast of characters that help drive home the point that despite where you came from, it’s where you’re going that matters most. “The Crooked Road Home,” is available through Amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and publishamerica.com. Korson will have a limited number of books on hand for purchase.
