An author who lived in Hope growing up and went to Hope Secondary School is returning to lead a writing workshop.

Lorna Carleton is currently living in Vernon and is the author of several fantasy novels.

She will be in town on Aug. 9, hosting a workshop at the Hope Library. The workshop is open to all ages and runs from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition to being an author, Carleton works as a safety advisor for a major utility company and is working toward her university degree.

“Though I’ve dreamed of being an author since childhood, and made several attempts at novel writing, The Dragons of Nibiru is my first published story,” her biography says. She has since added to the series.

“My inspiration for the stories came from observations of life over the years; chief among them were clashes among diverse cultures, and the struggles of former cult members to get on with their lives and find happiness.”
