Local author honored in London

Published: 2/15/2019 4:43:09 PM

Hooksett author Richard Hatin was recognized as runner up for Best Genre Fiction for his new book, Next In Line at The London Book Festival.

Next In Line is the first of an upcoming series, Taking Up the Sword, for young adult readers.

Entries are judged by a panel of publishing industry experts looking for general excellence and the author’s passion for telling a good story and the potential of the work to gain a wider audience in the worldwide market.

Hatin gets inspiration from his environment and his faith. His previous thrillers, Evil Agreement and Deadly Whispers are horror tales that keep you at night, but always make you think about the righteous and the damned. Deadly Whispers was named runner up for Best Fiction at the Halloween Book Festival – also garnering Honorable Mentions for Best Fiction at the Los Angeles, Great Southeast and San Francisco Book Festivals. Miracle at Janet’s Mountain is a spiritual novel that earned honorable mention at the Paris and Hollywood Book Festivals.

Hatin is a member of the International Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America, and the New Hampshire Writer’s Project. He lives with his wife, Anne Marie, in Hooksett, and together they have three sons, and three granddaughters.

Hatin and other winners will be honored at a gala reception in London this month.

Next In Line and Hatin’s other novels are available at your favorite local and online bookstore and at HeadlineBooks.com. For more information visit RichardHatin.com.
