Open Books Welcomes Two New Authors
Adele Elliott, author of Friendship Cemetery (Crooked Cat, 2013), has joined the Open Books family of authors. Open Books will publish her new novel, Witch Ball, in spring 2014.
Adele Elliott is a New Orleans native, exiled in Columbus, Mississippi. She is a 1995 graduate of the University of New Orleans with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts. She minored in English and was the fiction editor of Ellipsis, the literary magazine of UNO.
For the past six years, Elliott has been a weekly columnist for The Commercial Dispatch in Columbus, writing about current events, especially in the arts. In addition, she has been a regular contributor to Catfish Alley, a quarterly magazine that focuses on the culture of the South.
Tim Cole was born in Enfield, Middlesex, UK in 1977. His mother was a talented short story writer who encouraged his writing from a young age. He studied English at university and, after a brief stint as a journalist, taught creative writing in colleges and academies in the Midlands for just over a decade.
A talented musician, magician and poker player, Cole’s debut novel, One To A Million, is an inspirational tale for modern times. The character-driven story combines friendship, relationships, love and dreams all blended within a fresh and free-flowing narrative.
The follow-up, A Million To One, shows Cole’s writing flexibility in a darker tale tracking the perils and pitfalls of wealth and fame.
Cole has also written many short stories which champion the plight of the poor, the underdog and the average man on the street.
