DANVILLE —– A Danville native has written a science fiction work with a sequel to her novel set in Danville expected to be published soon.
Holly Fox Vellekoop’s new book “Watching Corona: From Our Dimension to Yours” debuted as a paperback at Amazon Books. Her fourth work to be published, it is also available as an eBook.
She expects the second book in a series, based in Danville, to be published before the end of the year. It is titled “Teen Lovers: Murder Along the River.” It is a fictional novel about the murders of two high school seniors, of the Class of 1955, at Danville’s F.Q. Hartman Athletic Field in 1954.
“I have two more completed sequels set in Danville to be published plus I’m writing a humorous book for people of all ages and a non-fiction about people who inspire others,” said Vellekoop who lives in Palm Bay, Fla. She is also a poet, columnist and speaker.
Her science fiction book tells of brilliant Grace Bond and her genius child Corona as they struggle with visions and apparitions of creatures of the night. Vellekoop touches on the idea of humans abducted by aliens and creatures from other worlds visiting earth regularly.
When Grace appears to have died after childbirth, Corona forages and observes her “nighttime family” where hybrid humans are captured and drift to a zero point field. Corona enters this dimension where friends, foes and much more are harbored.
Vellekoop expects to hold a book signing for “Corona” and her latest murder sequel next year in the Thomas Beaver Free Library in Danville.
Her first novel, “Stone Haven: Murder Along the River,” is available on Amazon as are her previous books. That fictional murder mystery is set in Danville and Riverside with well-known sites mentioned such as the Beaver library. The book is about a lieutenant uncovering secrets of Danville while reopening a cold case about a famous psychopathic artist and the murder of several little girls.
