Trent Alumnus Launches Book to Satisfy the Fantasy Enthusiast

Trent alumnus Holly Bennett is breaking the mould for Fantasy literature with the launch of her first novel, The Bonemender.

Ms. Bennett, a graduate from the class of '79, notes that Fantasy is a popular genre but is often oriented toward male heroes.

"I wanted to show that good Fantasy could be made with female heroes in epic battles," she said at the official launch of The Bonemender at Titles Bookstore in Peterborough on October 3.

According to Ms. Bennett, the book was inspired by the reading she and her children do together. In fact, Starwars, a favourite of her children, was how she envisioned The Bonemender would come together thematically, she said.

Ms. Bennett, an editor for the popular Canadian magazine Today's Parent, hinted she was working on some new projects including a sequel to The Bonemender. She is also writing a third novel, a fictional Irish myth which was inspired by a trip to Ireland. Both novels should be in bookstores soon.
