LACE Welcomes Author Nicholas Forristal!

LACE is excited to welcome KSU alum Nicholas Forristal!
 
Born in the 80s during the age of Oregon Trail, Nicholas remembers the days before the internet, when the world was young and herds of dial-up BBS roamed the digital landscape in peace. Nicholas went on to college at Kansas State University and studied psychology. It was here, at the pinnacle of his lowly existence, that he met his future wife. After that, life became dull and work-centric, as adulthood typically does. So now he writes to fight back the madness, while his son plays with imaginary friends.

LACE Welcomes Author Jessica Benoist-Young!

LACE is excited to welcome to our show for the first time author Jessica Benoist-Young!

Jessica Benoist-Young is a self-published author and freelance ghostwriter. She self-published the mystery comedy novel ‘Strip Search’ in 2015. The novel has found acclaim with readers for its witty characters and page-turning plot.

In 2017, she published ‘The Devil’s Triangle’, a humorous, supernatural cruise-ship romp that readers called ” hilarious, mysterious and wild”.

With her sister, Glee and Supergirl star, Melissa Benoist, Jessica is in the planning and proposal stages of a Young Adult Supernatural Fantasy novel they plan to write together. Jessica has also written over a dozen paranormal romance and fantasy romance novels over the last two years as a ghostwriter.

When not writing, Jessica loves dancing, board games, stand up comedy, and many activities of the outdoorsy variety–gardening, hiking, skiing–and her birdwatching in her backyard led to the creation of the ‘live tweet show’ Real Housebirds of Kansas, a satirical online chronicle of bird feeder drama.

She has been married for ten years and has two sons named after presidents. She knows entirely too much about coffee and movies, and would really like to own a pet snake someday.
