August 9, 1:00-1:40pm
George R. Fehling, author of the novel

  • ELA, 7-12
  • Audience cap: 42

Many people have a story they dream of telling through the novel format, and today, there are many ways to make that dream a reality. First-time novelist George R. Fehling persevered over five years to complete the polished manuscript of his novel DARK PEAK, which was eventually published by Founders House in October 2015. In his light-hearted presentation, George will share the ups and downs of the experience to help aspiring teacher and student novelists find their own way to publication.

After graduating from New York University in 1984, George R. Fehling spent several years working in Asia and Europe as a writer, editor, and corporate communications manager. Returning to the US, he settled in the small town of Underhill, Vermont, where together with his wife Linda and his yellow lab Jack, he began exploring the slopes of Mount Mansfield where his first novel, DARK PEAK, is based.

George now lives with his family in a 250-year-old farmhouse in the Hudson Valley of New York, working on new ideas related to the DARK PEAK universe.
