Authors David Corwell and Lela Belle Wolfert

David Corwell writes mainly short stories and says that “the shorter prose form provides a constant challenge to encapsulate ideas with a minimal amount of words.” He focuses on fantasy, horror, and science fiction and is currently collaborating with two other writers on a fantasy graphic novel. His short story “Legacy of the Quedana” appeared in Cloaked in Shadow: Dark Tales of Elves, an anthology that was a finalist for a New Mexico Book Award.

Lela Belle Wolfert is a teacher, poet, novelist, and storyteller. When asked what her writing day is like, she says, “I don’t have any set schedule. Something usually happens and I get an idea for a story or a poem. Some days I look up from writing and find an hour, or even more, has passed.” Her romantic suspense novel, Deception and Desire, was a 2008 New Mexico Book Award finalist and she has also published a book of poetry.

Both authors will be reading and speaking on August 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Esther Bone Memorial Library as part of the library’s New Mexico Author Series of speakers. Mr. Corwell and Ms. Wolfert will have books available for sale and signing and will be available to answer questions. The Esther Bone Library is located at 950 Pinetree Road SE in Rio Rancho. For information, call the library at 891-5012, extension 3128.
