Local veterinarian and author to launch debut novel at the Colgate Bookstore

Join us at the Colgate Bookstore at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, April 14, at for a book signing and presentation by local author and veterinarian Frank Martorana. The cruelty of dog fighting, veganism vs. a meat-inclusive diet, the credibility of veterinarians who enjoy hunting and even the very notion of pet ownership, are hot button topics Frank Martorana weaves into his new novel, Taking on Lucinda. And it all happens while the reader enjoys a wild ride as protagonist veterinarian Kent Stephenson battles to protect the people and animals in his town from a cult that thrives on all that animal-lovers despise.

“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,” said Martorana. “By the time I looked up, I had a three-book series, The Kent Stephenson Thrillers.”

Books two and three are in production.

“Martorana produces a compelling story starring an engaging hero…descriptions are strong. Both sides of the animal rights controversy are well-presented. A vet with investigative chops and his loyal coonhound make an appealing duo in this original story.” — Kirkus Reviews
