LACE Welcomes Author Jared Vaughn!

LACE is excited to welcome back author Jared Vaughn!
 
Jared Vaughn is the author of the acclaimed novel The Longest Time. It’s a nostalgic story about a unique boy named Charlie, whose love for his childhood friend Lisa leads him to fulfill a heroic purpose. Readers of all ages have unanimously agreed that they “can’t put it down,” and are eagerly awaiting the sequel, Another Time. Jared’s vision extends beyond this series with his company, Time Honored Productions. He will be publishing a collection of short stories by new writers this summer, with more surprises in the works as well. He loves to encourage dreamers in his writing workshops and panels at comic cons and libraries, with a special emphasis on the youth. In addition to his writing and publishing, Jared is also known for his cosplay. He has appeared at many conventions as Marty McFly beginning on Back to the Future Day, October 21st, 2015. He’s quick to make you laugh with his impressions and costumes from all three films, often accompanied by Doc Brown. His cosplay has even included Clark Kent, Neo, and the highly original Mario McFly. Whether he’s riding a hoverboard or writing a story, Jared Vaughn encourages you to take Doc’s advice–“The future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one.”
