Book Fair Authors

Faith Phillips

FAITH PHILLIPS is a best-selling author, publisher, and television producer. Her work includes fiction and non-fiction books, rock & roll reviews, and a variety of print and online essays. Raised by feral hillbillies in the foothills of the Ozark mountains, she created the sub-genre “Okie Noir”. This form of storytelling expresses the grief, survival, transformation, and rebirth of people living in the Cherokee Nation.

We descend from migrants, troubadours, outlaws, and survivors of attempted genocide. We remain to tell our own stories, often with a dose of humor to soften the blows. 

More about Faith and her books can be found at her website Read Books by Faith.

DAVID JENNINGS, Broken Arrow, is a local physician of rehabilitation medicine at the VA Medical Center.  Before entering medicine, he studied English and earned a BA from the University of Arkansas.  He began writing verse, paired with original photographs, a few years ago and continues to enjoy doing so now–most often between the hours of 4:30 and 7:00 AM before leaving for work.

“The Smallest Hint” is David’s first book. It is a collection of original photographs paired with poetry. David’s work has been published in many poetry journals in the past, including The Lyric, Byline, Anathema Review and others. You can read more about David at his website.
