#minorsextrafficking | Four local authors among the 22 at Sunday’s Writers on the River

Keith Julius of Temperance had already self-published a suspense thriller when he embarked on a new series, one a bit closer to his heart.

“Catch a Falling Star” is a series of fictional books based on his eight years as a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate in Lucas County. CASAs advocate for abused and neglected children and also work in Monroe County.

Julius is one of 22 local and regional authors attending Sunday’s Writers on the River event at the Ellis Library & Reference Center.

“I attended Writers on the River once before. It was a pleasure to attend,” Julius said. “It’s always great to have the opportunity to meet potential readers and communicate as well with fellow writers in our community.”

Julius has published three books in the CASA-themed series and is working on a fourth for National Novel Writers Month, which is this month. The works explore drug addiction, child abuse, mental illness and human trafficking. The new book is on teen suicide.
