The Cazenovia Public Library will welcome local veterinarian and author Frank Martorana to the Community Room on Tuesday, May 1 at 7:00 pm. Dr. Martorana will discuss his debut mystery/thriller novel, Taking on Lucinda, and address the social issues confronting veterinarians.
Martorana grew up in upstate New York and graduated from the Veterinary College at Cornell University. He is a veterinarian at Cazenovia Animal Hospital. In his new book, the author weaves hot-button issues (e.g., dog fighting, veganism, hunting, and pet ownership) into a captivating storyline. Readers are taken on a wild ride as the protagonist, veterinarian Kent Stephenson battles to protect his town from a cult that thrives on everything animal lovers despise.
Martorana says, “My primary goal was to write a page-turner, with all the requisite arson, murder, and mayhem, but I also wanted it to shed a good light on our profession. By the time I looked up, I had a three-book series.” Books two and three of The Kent Stephenson Thrillers are complete and currently in production.
Taking On Lucinda is available in paperback or as an e-book on Amazon, at the Colgate University Bookstore, and at many other book retailers. Books will be available for purchase in the Community Room following the presentation.
All events at the Cazenovia Public Library are free and open to the public. For more information, call 315-655-9322 or visit www.cazenoviapubliclibrary.org.
