Crescent City Moon is a YA - Adult crossover, paranormal fiction novel, and the first in the series. On the eve of her twenty-first birthday in 1820s New Orleans, Zéolie Cheval discovers the mangled body of her father murdered in his bed. As she struggles to figure out what happened, a maniacal voice settles into the recesses of her mind. When the priest sent to comfort Zéolie is killed, unnoticed in a house swarming with police, she is launched into a tangled web of mystery that takes her from the French Quarter to the Ursuline Convent in the Ninth Ward, and deep into the Louisiana swamps.
Originally from south Louisiana, Nola Nash now makes her home in Brentwood, Tennessee, with her three children. Growing up in Baton Rouge, she spent long hours in the local community theaters and writing stories that refused to leave her head any other way than to be put on paper. Her biggest inspiration was the city of New Orleans that gave her at an early age a love of magic, mystery, and history.
Nola has a Master’s degree in education, which means, when she isn’t writing, you can find her teaching middle school English and co-directing the school plays and musicals.
Join her on the evening of December 9 at 6:30 o'clock in the Meeting Room to learn more about her and her new book.
