CORAL GABLES NEWS -- Books and Books in Coral Gables hosted a reading and book signing event for Miami author Seven N Blue on November 1, and despite the chilly evening drew a crowd that filled all the seats. Seven N Blue’s pen name is as remarkable as her debut novel, “The Lunatics,” an urban adventure tale that she said began as a young adult novel but grew to have broader appeal. Her voice, both in the writing sense and in the speaking sense, is compelling and alluring and kept her audience mesmerized for nearly an hour as she read aloud the first chapter of her book. In a genre previously dominated by vampires and other pop supernatural icons, the author has crafted something different and original set in a borderland somewhere between the realms of sanity and madness. Her protagonist’s quest plays out across the cityscape of San Francisco,which is appropriate since the author graduated from San Francisco State with a Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing.
