Authors Robert and A. C. Brooks' Booksigning to be held at The Curiosity Shop Bookstore, Murphy, NC, Friday October 5, 2018

Author Robert Brooks of Brevard NC is a featured guest at The Curiosity Shop bookstore in Murphy on Friday, October 5, 2018. The book-signing event from five to eight p.m. for his mystery novel The Clown Forest Murders is part of the regular Friday night Art Walk celebrated each month in Murphy, NC.

Bob, along with first author and son A.C. Brooks, wrote The Clown Forest Murders released last November by Black Opal Books. The tale is set in a small town with surrounding forests and fields where strange mushrooms can arise and change behavior. Those who marvel at the alluring fungi in western NC forests will see them in a new and mysterious light. The novel tells Dave’s story: he witnessed his brother’s murder, but amnesia protects him, his memories return, and he must investigate. Dave’s return to his home town sparks problems with his psychiatrist, local cops, and the killer. Written in memory of a son and brother, the novel is dedicated to those who endure mental illness. Elements of an attractive but flawed hero, a heroine who holds a secret, and a hidden killer make the book a great read. The author will be available at The Curiosity Shop to discuss his books, reveal secrets of their creation, and sign copies.


R.R. Brooks, a retired pharmaceutical researcher, lives in Brevard with his wife, a beagle, and two cats. He writes fiction and nonfiction, including published science fiction and fantasy stories. The epic fantasy novel Justi the Gifted was published by Leo Publishing in January 2015. He is a member of several writers groups and the N.C. Writers’ Network and maintains author’s pages on Facebook and Amazon
