Two local authors will launch their newest titles at special events in the city's libraries over the next few days.

Peter Breakwell, who writes under the pseudonym Peter Lathe, will be unveiling his new crime novel Superstore Killer when he is the guest speaker at Wednesfield Readers' Group's meeting at Wednesfield Community Hub on Monday 9 June, 2014, between 2pm and 3pm.

Born and raised in Wednesfield, Peter's writing career spans 4 decades, and he has drawn on his experiences in the retail trade during the 1980s for his page turner about a series of horrific murders.

Before that, debut author Colin Hopson, who writes as Colin Martin, will unveil horror novel Dream Master at Warstones Readers' Group this Monday (2 June, 2014), between 5.45pm and 6.45pm.

Born in Wolverhampton, the Library Support Assistant at the University of Wolverhampton has always been fascinated by the supernatural and this has inspired a tense psychological novel of demonic horror based upon a nightmare of the lead character, a journalist who connects a series of recent deaths to his horrific nightmares.

Both authors will be presenting a talk about their new books and how they came about at the Readers' Group events which are free and open to all.

Tina Campbell, Wolverhampton Libraries' Activities and Events Co-ordinator, said: "These events provide a great opportunity to meet like-minded readers and also talk to the authors behind these two new novels, Superstore Killer and Dream Master.

"We have many readers' groups at our libraries across the city and everyone is welcome to attend these two events."
