Event Description:

Join Stepping Stones Christian Bookstore to welcome Christian YA Fantasy Author, LG Nixon on Thursday, October 6 at 10 AM. Nixon will be signing and reading from her novels, The Ghost of Darwin Stewart, and The Ghost Writer, books one and two, respectively, of The Issachar Gatekeeper Series. Each store will host an event allowing customers to meet and greet the author, enjoy a chapter reading, and register for prize drawings. 

If you’re wondering why a Christian author would write about ghosts, a subject most churches and Christian parents steer away from, keep reading. These are not your typical ghost stories. Nixon uses scripture and Biblical imagery to illustrate God’s love and forgiveness, our hope of redemption, and the reality of living in a world where a supernatural dimension lies just on the other side of what we perceive as our “ordinary life.” Concepts like prayer and the presence of God is depicted in an unlikely relationship. With the charm of Narnia and a few of Nancy Drew’s detective skills, Nixon weaves a page-turning adventure to delight the entire family. Readers familiar with scripture will recognize the references while others will simply enjoy a fast-paced ghostly escapade.
 
Nixon grew up in a creaky old house with a grandmother who told stories of ghostly visitors, so she naturally gravitated toward the mysterious. After a long career in office management, she turned to writing. She researches and writes from her home in Michigan where she lives with her husband, a tailless cat, and a hyper Boxer named Cali.
