On the heels of the release of Always Gray in Winter, Allied Author Mark Engels will make a Fond du Lac appearance to promote his debut novel.
According to the Chapter 52 Bookstore press release:
Local author Mark J. Engels will sell and sign copies of his paranormal sci-fi thriller, Always Gray in Winter, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, November 11, at Chapter 52 Bookstore, next door to the Fond du Lac Public Library at 52 Sheboygan St.
His book, the first in a series, tells the tale of family of werecats, who, in modern-day Midwestern United States, are standing up to violent persecution by genetically enhanced soldiers and battling their way through an ancient clan feud. It’s an example of the subgenre anthropomorphic fiction, where characters have uniquely human characteristics and qualities despite being nonhuman.
Engels grew up in Michigan and followed boyhood interests in trains and electronics into a career as an electrical engineer for railroads and rail transit agencies. His longtime interests in anime, manga and anthropomorphic fandoms grew into writing genre fiction. He lives in Fond du Lac with his wife and son.
