Renegade Writers publish fourth book

Members of the Renegade Writers Guild have published their fourth book, “Doorway to the Past,” edited by Julie Terry Cartner.

The book, historical fiction, tells of the adventures of nine middle school children as they travel through time.

Bringing their unique styles to the book, the authors – Linda Barnette, Julie Cartner, Marie Craig, Stephanie Dean, Gaye Hoots, Shari Keller, David Moore, Nancy Tucker and Kevin Wishon – have submitted weekly writings for “The Literary Corner” in the Davie County Enterprise Record. Several have published other books, have won local and state writing competitions and write for other publications.

“Door to the Past” is available for sale in paperback at The Artist on Main and Ketchie Creek Bakery, and online through Amazon as a paperback or Kindle purchase. Proceeds will be donated to the Dragonfly House.

Because of precautions due to COVID-19, the writing guild has no specific plans for a book signing, but hope to schedule one in the future.

The Dragonfly House, a children’s advocacy center in Mocksville, has the mission “to reduce the devastating long-term effects that all forms of child abuse have on children, their families and society through immediate, coordinated, child-focused services, education and advocacy.”

“A much-needed support system for the children and families of Davie County, their work with children struggling with the effects of abuse has made a positive impact on many young lives and is a credit to this county,” Cartner said. “The Renegade Writers Guild is thrilled to support this worthwhile organization.
