Meet Young Adult and Fantasy Author Lucienne Diver

The Lake County Library System will feature as emcee Lucienne Diver, award winning young adult and fantasy author at the third annual Trash to Fashion Contest, on Saturday, October 20th at the Leesburg Public Library beginning at 11 a.m.

Lucienne Diver writes Young Adult Vampire novels (the Vamped series) about a teen fashionista who goes from chic to eek when she wakes up as one of the undead; and Adult Urban Fantasy (the Latter-Day Olympians series) featuring a heroine with a drop of gorgon blood, who can literally stop men in their tracks. From the bestselling books and block-buster films of the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer to the hit series Vampire Diaries (L.J. Smith) and True Blood (Charlaine Harris) - fanged fiction - is every bit as hot as…well, Lucienne’s young adult heroine.

Urban Fantasy, like Bad Blood, the first in her Latter-Day Olympians series, has also been burning up bestseller lists, with pioneers like Laurell K. Hamilton, Jim Butcher, Kim Harrison and others leading the way. Long and Short Reviews gave it Lucienne’s favorite endorsement of all time, "Bad Blood is a delightful Urban Fantasy, a clever mix of Janet Evanovich and Rick Riordan, and a true Lucienne Diver original " She can now die happy, although maybe not just yet.

Meet the author at this spectacular fashion extravaganza. The show will be stage managed and projected on the big screen by the Film and Television Production students from Lake Minneola High School under the direction of Stuart Klatte. After the contest, pictures of your outfit and/or accessory will be posted on our website and available for download.

Entry to the show is free.
