Fiction writers Alison Dibble and Roger M. Woodbury, who have embarked on publishing multi-volume works that will span many stories and many years, will speak jointly on the process of fiction writing and self-publishing Tuesday, July 15, at 7 p.m. at Camden Public Library.

Although each of their voices is distinct, there is a resonance between their work, as both have strong Maine characters who have been affected by foreign wars and international events. They promise to reveal a few tips and tricks for keeping the story moving, for building suspense and setting up for reader satisfaction.

Woodbury, who lives in Morrill, recently published Book II of “The Mists of Adriana,” a romantic thriller about a former Vietnam War soldier living a reclusive life on the Maine coast. He meets a woman unexpectedly, thanks to a car in need of repair. Unlike him, she is not at peace with her past … and it may be creeping closer to her than she knows.

After more than 20 years of writing, she has released her 9/11 suspense novel “A Skeptic’s Luck,” the first in a trilogy, under the pen name A. D. Morel. Her novel is the story of a graduate student whose husband was lost when he went to New York on business in September 2001. When her daughter reports that she saw him at the Bangor Airport, the shocking question arises: could he still be alive? Dibble has a creative writing blog at

There will be books available for purchase and signing at the library event.
