OUR GUEST SPEAKER THIS YEAR IS – R. C. Durkee
Ms. Durkee is the author of Rum Run which was selected to represent Ohio books and authors at the Ohioana in Columbus in 2015. Rum Run is an action-packed, historically-based novel of love, loyalty and revenge set during 1920’s Prohibition on the waters of Lake Erie and its southern shoreline. It is the story of a desperate man turned outlaw rum runner who risks the lives of those he loves as well as his own.

Along with writing short stories and essays, she is also an award-winning artist whose artwork has also been featured on covers and in books. She lives with her husband and family in Ohio, and is the sixth generation to have raised horses, sheep, cows and crops on her family’s 188 year-old farm. Stories handed down through her family have found their way into her writings. She is currently writing a Civil War novel based on a soldier’s diary that lead to a mystery and a life-long quest.
