“Write What You Know!”
All authors hear this when they attend their first class in creative writing. What does it really mean? Join with Kevin V. Symmons, best-selling author of 5 romantic thrillers as he explains how he has taken this to heart.
Kevin has had what some might call a diverse life. He has a BS, an MBA, and was the President of a successful manufacturer. He also studied in France, minored in classical music and psychology at Northeastern University, and spent time studying vocal performance at New England Conservatory. He’s used many of these skills and experiences in crafting his novels.
He served four terms as President of the Cape Cod Writer’s Center, has taught creative writing at Massasoit Community College, and is a frequent speaker at conferences and events.
On April 24th he’ll be at the South Yarmouth Library from 2 to 4 p.m. to explain how his most passionate avocation—being a long-time U.S. Coast Guard certified mariner—led to the writing of his most successful novel, Out of the Storm.
Out of the Storm is a contemporary romantic thriller set on the Bass River. It has garnered dozens of 5-star reviews, been a selected by Amazon for its prestigious Encore Program, and continues to find its way to the top of Amazon best-sellers rankings—as high as #2 this January!
Come meet Kevin and learn how his life on Cape Cod helped propel Out of the Storm into his most successful novel!
