Horror author Timothy G. Huguenin to sign books and discuss his work in Elkins this Saturday

Elkins, WV — Award-winning horror author and Elkins resident Timothy G. Huguenin will be discussing his work and signing books this Saturday evening at 6 p.m. on June 22, at Alexandria on Main.

Dr. Ashley Lawson, Associate Professor of English at West Virginia Wesleyan College, will facilitate the conversation with Huguenin about his books, which include the West Virginia Author Project winner “When the Watcher Shakes,” the Canaan Valley ghost story “Little One,” and his strange and horrifying novella “Unknowing, I Sink.” All of his books are set in his home state of West Virginia.

“Growing up in these mountains has greatly impacted my writing,” Huguenin states. “Even when I am aiming to scare readers, I also strive to establish a strong sense of place and convey the beauty of West Virginia and her people. There has been a dismaying trend in the horror genre of promoting offensive stereotypes of Appalachians. I want to represent West Virginians fairly in my fiction, with the dignity and respect we deserve.”

His literary heroes include not only horror masters like Stephen King and Edgar Allan Poe, but also the acclaimed West Virginia authors Denise Giardina and Davis Grubb.

In addition to writing novels, Huguenin is an accomplished writer of short fiction. His stories have appeared in various publications including YNST Magazine, Anthology of Appalachian Writers Vol. XI, and The Saturday Evening Post.

Following his discussion with Dr. Lawson, Huguenin will meet fans and sign his books, which are available for purchase at Alexandria on Main.

Tickets for the event are limited and can be purchased online at www.alexandriaonmain.com.
