For the March 2014 meeting, the Beta Literary Club invited local young adult author Jennifer A. Nielsen to talk about her writing and the different books she has published. Nielsen’s “The Ascendance Trilogy” final book “The Shadow Throne” had been released the week before. Nielsen’s agent had called her before the meeting to let her know that “The Ascendance Trilogy” was number seven on the top 10 of the New York Times Best Series list. Also the new book has reached 114 on the 150 USA Best Seller List. Nielsen was having a great day.
