When you use your dollars to purchase books, movies, or any other form of entertainment you influence the world. Our purchases of clean and inspirational work coupled with well-told stories and inspirational books can create change and make a statement.
Thursdays, I like to feature authors committed to writing clean or inspirational books like T.K. Perry, author of Elissa Blue: Book One of The Winged, Published by Scarlet Note Publishing. But, I rarely get to go to lunch with the author! T.K. Perry was among a group of Oregon and Washington authors I met for lunch at Hawthorns Fish house.
Although we were all meeting for the first time, it was like meeting old friends. Authors… I am learning to spot them, even when they aren’t in a convenient group. Predictably we all read a ton. We also think constantly about our stories and the characters that haunt us. But, I wouldn’t have predicted that four of the five authors at the table would be gluten and dairy-free! T.K. Perry is creative, hilarious, and as pretty as her picture inside and out. She has common sense and a writer’s soul. She lives a life of adventure, seeking the most beautiful spots in Oregon and Washington to raise her family, and her daughter is evidence of what a great mother she is.
I have to take a moment to say what a pleasure it was to meet a young person who was invested in her education, and lit up like a Christmas tree when she talked about what she was writing. Someday, in the future, I hope I get to feature a book by T.K. Jr. She was a credit to her mother.
About T.K. Perry, Author
T.K. Perry lives with her husband and daughter in a lovely Oregon forest filled with wildlife (there is probably a house, too, but that’s less picturesque). When she isn’t writing or watching said wildlife, she enjoys making jewelry, pretending to be a photographer, and trying to save the world (a frustrating task since she lacks both superpowers and a costume). T.K. received a B.A. in International Relations from Brigham Young University, an M.A. in International Politics from the University of Denver Graduate School of International Studies, and a J.D. from the University of Denver College of Law. She is currently working on Book Three of The Winged series.
T.K. Perry’s book is a fantasy that takes place in a future world, where people, and I hope authors have wings (I have always wanted wings). The cover artwork is beautiful. She believes in good and evil and happy endings. I asked T.K. Perry, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints why she is committed to writing only clean or inspirational books. She said:
“I felt inspired to write this series instead of going back to work when my daughter started kindergarten. I think of them as covert missionary work as I slip eternal truths into the entertainment.”
