Inspiration in the night

Two women with local ties publish books

What does it take to write a book?

For two women with connections to the local area, all it took was a bit of inspiration in the night.

Joanna Nobell, a Brookings resident, and Patty James, who used to live in Crescent City and now resides in Redding, recently had books published that are available online.

Nobell will have a book signing at the Barnes and Nobel in Medford on Aug. 15 and is planning one at Words and Pictures in Brookings sometime this fall.

Nobell never thought she would become a writer and is not entirely comfortable being called one, she said. 

“I was a painter,” Nobell explained. “I wrote cutesy poem for my kids.”

She felt the urge to write a story last fall, she said, and now it’s available online through her Web site www.joannanobell.com.

James, too, never thought she would become a writer. Her book, “Visions and Dreams” was inspired by a dream. She ultimately plans for it to be a five-part series.

Both books are available online at major book seller Web sites.


Local jazz musician all over airwaves

Only a select few performers have heard their music on national radio.

And if they can hear their music on the airwaves, that means thousands and perhaps millions of other people are also listening to their words and melodies.

Recording artist Beverly Ritz, who lives in Smith River, has received radio air play from her most recent album, “Lacey Mae,” on KMHD, a top jazz station in Gresham, Ore., including the “Saturday Night Jazz” show with Al Evans.
