Local author to discuss new novel at Pinson Library
From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
PINSON — Be sure to come out to support local author Mike Garret as he discusses his new novel, Innocence Denied, at the Pinson Library Saturday at 10 a.m.
The book, set on Logan Martin Lake in Talladega County, Alabama, focuses on Derrick Walton, a Christian man who risks his life to help Larissa Baxter, a woman who has been falsely accused of murder.
“I think that all centers around the male character, Derrick, who just got through a terrible life crisis and now he’s facing another one,” Garrett said. “He finds it difficult to forgive himself for his past sins, even though God has forgiven him. So he’s probably in the greatest need of his entire life, but he decides to focus on the plight of someone else instead of himself because of that verse. He’s on a mission of his own and he puts the needs of someone else ahead of his own.”
Garrett’s new book is available online through Walmart, Target, Books-A-Million, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon. It is available in both paperback and e-book formats. Copies will also be available for purchase at Saturday’s event.
