Killarney Traynor on the Power of Local Writing

This year’s Summer Author Series will wrap up on August 5 with Killarney Traynor on the Power of Local Writing.

            Growing up in New Hampshire, Killarney Traynor’s love of the Auburn area and its history heavily influences her work. In fact, most of her books are set in the Granite State.

            She’ll talk about using not only what you know, but where you are in your writing, plus some stories about the cross-over between writing and filmmaking. Killarney will speak on what it’s like being an independent author in this day and age, how to make time and what it means to share your art in an increasingly digital world.

            Traynor also works as an actress and director. She wrote, produced, and directed Michael Lawrence: The Season of DarknessThe Dinner Party, and The Fair Fight, all in association with Narrow Street Films. She also directed the short film, Typo Squad, and works as an actress in other short films and features.

            Her latest book is a Wild West Mystery, “Jenny Goodnight.” The last thing pistol-packing, burnt-out missionary woman Jenny Goodnight wants is trouble. Unfortunately for her, the town of Legacy is just about to go to war, with the secretive and powerful founding family on one side and Jenny’s uncle, the firebrand newspaperman Matthew Goodnight, on the other. Blood will be shed and Jenny is right in the middle.

A question and answer period will follow Killarney’s presentation and she’ll have her books available to sell.  Join us on Thursday, August 5 from 6:30-8 PM. Free and open to the public. Registration for this event HERE.

Killarney Traynor is a New England-born actress, novelist, stuntwoman, singer, and martial artist. Her debut novel, Summer Shadows, was released in November 2014. She has written three books in the Mysteries Next Door series and has authored three books in The Encounter Series with her sister, Margaret. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found rummaging through used book stores, scouring the internet for little-known Sci-Fi shows, getting lost in Boston, or searching for the perfect cup of tea.
