April Local Author Day

April 13, 2019 starting at 11 am

Meet some of Delaware’s local authors who will be on hand to talk about their books, getting published and will have books for sale. This month’s lineup includes:


Jack Elbon
Jack Elbon grew up in West Virginia and joined the military, with deployment during the Korean War. He has had many adventures and learned many things through his life and is currently working on putting words to paper for his next book.



K.L. Montgomery
K.L. Montgomery grew up in Greencastle, Indiana, and studied psychology and library science at Indiana University. After a career as a librarian, she now writes novels and wrangles three sons and four cats at her home in rural Delaware, which she shares with her husband and the aforementioned creatures. She has an undying love of Broadway musicals, the beach, the color teal, IU basketball, paisleys, and dark chocolate.


Clifton Pettyjohn
Clifton M. Pettyjohn has served as an essential factor in both the religious and education cultures for well over nineteen years and recently he added influence in the culture of business to his summation. With guided passion, he meshes personal life lessons with practical and biblical principles to teach, train, and transform groups of divergent individuals.  In 2018, a year after publishing his first book, From Stagnation to Transformation, Clifton launched “the TRANSFORMATION centre,” a faith-based community for people from all walks of life to gather together to be equipped with the skills, tools and resources needed in order to be successful in all facets of life through executing their purpose.

Clifton currently resides in Dover, DE and enjoys writing and spending his free time with his family and love one.


Donna Powell
Donna Powell started her musical journey while listening to rock and roll during the summers in Virginia, listening to such artists as Jefferson Starship, Oakridge Boys, Stevie Nicks, Aretha Franklin, and Gladys Knight. She has always been an intricate part of the community, and developed her own nonprofit organization that inspires the disable during a time when employment became difficult. Educated at Maryland University in College Park, she defines integrity through her CDs and her books. Her book The Lost Heritage Almost and the Hidden Seeds traces her Native American heritage while being tossed and turned through political red tape. Ms. Powell strongly feels that we, as a people, need to become functional and concerned about the well-being of others that have been tossed.

She’s been writing about myriad facets of the paranormal for just as long on her paranormal blog The Shore at delawareparanormal.blogspot.com.
