SIGEL â€” â€śIâ€™ve always loved books,â€ť local author Colleen Hansen said. â€śMy mom used to read to me from a time that I was very young ... Books have always been magical for me.â€ť
Eventually, it occurred to her that it would be wonderful to write something like that, to be able to take people away and stir their imaginations.
Last month, it culminated in the publication of her first full-length novel, â€śRoses and Moonlight,â€ť on Aug. 4 under the local company Unknown Authors.
