Featured Authors

Many books allow us to escape the cares of this world, and enter places we have never been. Today, we are featuring some of those authors and their works. Please join us as we take a trip and explore new adventures with their books.

We would like to hear your comments about this site or any suggestions you may have at: The Pamlico Writers' Group.

 Chrome Pink


Rae Lynne Grimes returns to Leeward, North Carolina to care for her dying grandfather. Together, they restore an old Harley and paint it pink for breast cancer awareness. Her grandfather succumbs before seeing it finished. Alone, Rae must face the town of Leeward who blame her for sending her stepbrother to prison, costing their high school football team one of their champions. 

Now, her fate lays in the hands of the man who orchestrated her rape and shame, former football captain and elected mayor, Todd Bryant. When she rescues Logan Birdsong from a canal, she starts to believe she can have the fairy tale but when she learns he is working for Todd, she tries to get as far from him as possible. She joins her friend’s dating club and that soon turns to disaster when her dates start turning up dead. 

Logan is just trying to keep his stepfather’s company from filing chapter 13. He has over-extended and needs the new spa and hotel Bryant plans to build to put the company back in the black. Prostitutes at business meetings and Todd’s attitude make Logan wary. He is torn between his affection for Rae and his need to protect his stepdad's company.
When he becomes a murder suspect, that choice becomes easier.

Together Rae and Logan must prove their innocence, but they must stay alive to do it. Thrust together, they soon give in to their desires but someone doesn’t want them to have their happy ending.

    Our critique groups meets year-round, the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7pm, Turnage Theater in downtown Washington, NC. We will meet together before breaking out into genre groups.

    Purposely small critique group allows each person time to read a short selection of their latest work and receive constructive criticism in a caring atmosphere. We expect members to respect the boundaries of decency and propriety for the listener and the writer. We look forward to a mutual rich growth.

    Malaika King Albrecht

    Currently serving as the inaugural Heart of Pamlico Poet Laureate


    This will be a working workshop, so bring 3 pages of prose or 3 poems, a red pen, scissors, a box of kleenex, & a sense of humor

    It's been said to write with fire and edit with ice. The passion we have for an idea while writing is necessary and part of what makes writing so fulfilling in the moment. However, if we begin to edit too soon, we can't see our words with fresh eyes or listen with fresh ears. We need a certain distance to truly revise. Going beyond the simple edits for grammar, punctuation, and spelling, we can move into a way of making our good work even better. As poet Kim Addonizio suggests, it' a “re-visioning of the poem's potential and strategies it has used so far.”

    • the difference between editing and revising
    • tips for editing & revision
    • work-shopping time 

    Ms. Albrecht is the author of three poetry books. Her most recent book What the Trapeze Artist Trusts (Press 53) won honorable mention in the Oscar Arnold Young Award and was a finalist in 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. Her poems have been published in many literary magazines and anthologies and nominated for Pushcarts. Her poems have won awards in several contests, including at Poetry Southeast, the North Carolina Poetry Council, Salem College and Press 53. 

    She is also the founding editor of Redheaded Stepchild, an online magazine that only accepts poems that have been rejected elsewhere. 

    And lives in Ayden, N.C. with her family and is the executive director of Rocking Horse Ranch Therapeutic Riding Program.
