TODAY: Meet Local Teen Author Marta Stahlfeld at Steilacoom Farmers Market
Eighteen-year old author Marta Stahlfeld will be selling autographed copies of the first two books in her fantasy series for preteens at the Steilacoom Farmers Market, 3pm - 7pm, Wednesday, August 1, 2012
Similarly to the popular Redwall and Warrior series, all the characters in Stahlfeld's books are animals, though they display very human-like strengths and weaknesses.
Darkwoods, released in April 2011, begins the tale of the campaign of the Darkwoods Foxes to conquer the lands of the Wraith Mice, Squirrel Tribes, and their allies. In the newly-released sequel, Pasadagavra, the reader finds the war in full swing, and soon the great Stone Tribe city of Pasadagavra is under siege.
Stahlfeld's books bring to life everyday characters who find in themselves the ability to rise up and be heroes. "I like to write about characters who do the right thing, even when its hard and when they're tempted to take the easy way out instead," says Stahlfeld.
Stahlfeld will be selling both Darkwoods and Pasadagavra today at the Steilacoom Farmers Market, located next to the Steilacoom Town Hall on the corner of Lafayette & Wilkes Street, Steilacoom, WA 98388. For more information on the market, go to: http://steilacoomfarmersmarket.org/
