S For Story/10628735
ELKINS, W.Va. - s4story -- Award-winning horror author and West Virginia native Timothy G. Huguenin will be discussing his work and signing books this Saturday evening, 6 p.m. on June 22nd, at Elkins, WV's independent bookstore, Alexandria on Main.

Dr. Ashley Lawson, Associate Professor of English at West Virginia Wesleyan College, will be facilitating 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."
