"On tops of mountains, as everywhere to hopeful souls, it is always morning."

Local author Jennifer Gostin

Come meet Jennifer Gostin. The Eastham author has created a tantalizing tale out of old legends, tattered scarecrows, a half-forgotten colony, and a witch named Coral. An 1852 short tale by Nathaniel Hawthorne called Feathertop fueled her inspiration, but her modern twist is all her own and receiving great nods from local reviewers. Explore her mysterious and humorous vision, entitled Wonderstrand Tales, which is never out-of-season on fog-covered Cape Cod. 

Jennifer’s first publications were short stories during her college years in Ohio. A decade later, her first novel, Peregrine's Rest, was published by The Permanent Press. She studied folklore at University College, Dublin, and holds an MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. She loves Mozart, vintage mysteries, Halloween, gerbils, and comic strips. Wonderstrand Tales grew out of her love for the Cape landscape and from all the rich hours she has spent lost in stories. Visit her website, www.jennifergostin.com, for more information. Books will be available for sale and signing.
