Local author Judson Roberts celebrates release of new book

I thought we’d give Brazos Bookstore (2421 Bissonnet) another try because one of Houston’s own, Judson Roberts, has a signing there next week. Mr. Roberts is an interesting fellow. A former police officer, federal agent, prosecutor, and private investigator, he is now author of the Viking Strongbow Saga series published by HarperCollins for young adults. His latest book, second in the series, is Dragons from the Sea. How did Mr. Roberts cultivate an interest in ninth-century Viking history? Well, it seems he may be a “distant descendant” of a Viking leader by the name of Rolf or Hrolf.

Next Thursday, June 14, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. Brazos Bookstore launches the release of Dragons from the Sea. Roberts will be there in full Viking dress and talk about Vikings. (What else?) Sounds like a fun event. (If you can’t make it next week for some reason, you can catch up with Judson Roberts when he does a signing at River Oaks Bookstore (3270 Westheimer) on Thursday, June 21 from 5:00 p.m.
