More featured authors scheduled to appear at the UCF Book Festival

The UCF Book Festival is coming up at the end of March. Between now and then I'll post some of the events happening at The Arena on the Orlando Campus that you won't want to miss.  

This week I'd like to feature three of the featured authors.  

Michael Palmer is the author of 17 novels of medical and political suspense, all New York Times Best Sellers. His books have been translated into forty languages. Palmer was educated at Wesleyan University and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. His most recent novel, Oath of Office deals with genetically modified, trans-species corn. His novel Extreme Measures was made into the hit film of the same name starring Hugh Grant, Gene Hackman, and Sarah Jessica Parker. Palmer also works with the Massachusetts Medical Society’s Physician Health Services, helping doctors with physical and mental illness, as well as drug dependence and alcoholism.

Jeff Ashton was a prosecutor for the State of Florida for 30 years, and in that time he tried more than 80 murder cases. Now retired, he lives in Florida with his wife and children. He is the first lawyer to successfully try a case using DNA evidence.

Daniel Palmer spent a decade as an e-commerce pioneer, helping to build first generation Web sites for Barnes & Noble and other popular brands. An experienced musician and songwriter, Daniel has recorded two CDs and licensed his songs for commercial use. Daniel's next thriller novel, HELPLESS (Kensington 2012), received a starred review in both Publishers Weekly and Library Journal. He lives in New Hampshire with his wife and two children.
