The 5th annual Berkshire Blueberry & Book Festival will be coming up on Saturday, July 20. The festival’s line up of “Local Authors” includes old friends and new faces.
Horror author, Pamela Morris, grew up in Berkshire where small town life may have been boring at times, but it certainly fueled her imagination when it comes to all things Horror. In fact, the inspirations that surrounded her back then resulted in the creation of the Barnesville Chronicles, a series of novels set in the fictionalized versions of her hometown and other nearby communities.
The first two books, Secrets of the Scarecrow Moon and That’s What Shadows Are Made of are not only Paranormal Horror, but Murder-Mysteries, as well. These were followed by a two-part set titled The Witch’s Backbone: (Part 1-The Curse and Part 2-The Murder), inspired by Pamela’s love of spooky urban legends. More books in The Barnesville Chronicles are planned.
Beyond the realms of Barnesville, Pamela has also traveled the much darker worlds of Psychological Horror with two additional titles No Rest for the Wicked, set in a haunted plantation house in Virginia, and Dark Hollow Road, which takes place in the isolated farmlands of Eastern Pennsylvania. Currently, Pamela is working on a more traditional-themed Gothic Horror set in southwest Texas.
Meet Pamela and her fellow authors at the festival, held at the corner of Route 38 and Jewett Hill Road. Enjoy blueberry pancakes, a chicken BBQ, music and art, classic cars, blueberries, and baked goods. Browse more than two-dozen vendors, watch woodcarving demonstrations, enjoy fun kids’ activities.
