Linn Gamblin—A champion checker player by the age of 9, Linn pursued an engineering career that took him around the globe. During the COVID lockdowns, he focused his energy on writing and storytelling.
Keith Mallory—Keith started a novel while in college in the 1960s and finished it during the COVID lockdowns.
Larry Mance—Larry is a professional lyrical jazz poet writing in 4 moods (Romantic, Philosophical, Ethnic and Spiritual) as well as an author of Christian based short stories with a moral message but not preachy.
Kel O'Connor—Winner of the Pencraft Award and a finalist for The Book Buyers Best Award, The Maggie Award for Excellence and The Carolyn Reader’s Choice Award, Kel lives with her family in the mountains of North Carolina. In addition to reading and writing, she loves coffee, loud rock music, subversive humor and the smell of old books.

She also has shares in a son who is well on his way to being a vet. Two cats complete the crazy family.

He takes the characters and tales of his lifetime of experience and remembers them better for your entertainment.

Travis Wilson—After experiencing a life full of ups and downs, Travis came to recognize an undeniable desire to honor, glorify, and obey God in ministry. Now, his goal every day is to make a positive impact for God’s glory in this next generation's lives.
After browsing the store and meeting authors, Biltmore Park offers numerous restaurants, most with outdoor seating. Spring is the perfect time of year to enjoy a meal in our perfect weather.
