Writer one of many talented in Region 8 waiting to be discovered

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Fans were excited Saturday afternoon when they got a chance to meet a local author.

Linda Nance has written six books and offered the inside scoop for each tale she wrote.

Nance talked about her inspirations at the book signing.

At the meet and greet, Nance revealed she is currently working on a new book and will release her previous ones as eBooks.

CJ Abraham is with the Arts at 311 and said Nance is just one of many local talents that are just waiting to be discovered in Region 8.

"The best things to do is to get on the Internet, come downtown, browse the galleries, go to the forum see the plays, there's a lot of art right here," said Abraham "The wealth of talent we have in Northeast Arkansas is just amazing."

Abraham says they hold about nine events every month.
