Local author releases third book in series

Kevin Miller’s ‘Water War’ is now available for purchase.

Kimberley-based writer Kevin Miller has released another book in his Milligan Creek series, The Water War.

This is the third book in a three part series. Up the Creek and Unlimited are the two other books in the series.

All three books are middle-school fiction, aimed at ages 8 to 12. Over the past year, Miller has also released a few copies of his comic book series, Meth: The Immortal. He is also the author of the children’s book, Moody Bee, inspired by the local honey shop.

“When a beautiful new girl moves to Milligan Creek, Saskatchewan, everyone in town is so smitten that her mere presence threatens to ruin the perfect summer Matt has planned for him, his brother Chad, and their best friends Andrew and Dean,” Miller said about The Water War.

“So, the boys come up with what seems like the perfect distraction: a water war. It’s the ultimate game of survival, where every player is both hunter and prey. But when Matt’s buddies invite the new girl to join in, the game that was supposed to unite them against the interloper threatens to tear their close friendship apart.”

Miller will also be part of an authors’ event at Lotus Books in Cranbrook on December 9 (time to be determined). Several different authors will be present for an open house and book reading. For more information or to get a copy of one of Miller’s books, visit www.kevinmillerxi.com.
