Mentor author to sign her works at Borders

 Mentor native Kelly Jones will be at Borders Books & Music in Mentor from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday.
Stop by to learn more about her Adventure Tree series and "Notorious Nora."
Jones' books are geared toward middle readers.
“I wanted to write books that every child could identify with, no matter what nationality, religion or economic background. My hopes for my books are to encourage kids to be kind to one another without being too ‘preachy,’” she says.
According to her release: The Adventure Tree series is about two siblings that encounter a very special tree that thrusts them into exciting adventures that resonate with everyday issues such as, being kind and not judgmental, to being proud of who you are and your talents.
Notorious Nora, a young adult novel, tells the story of a pre-teen girl, who with her friends solve the mystery of the stolen championship trophy. While an entertaining who-dun-it, Notorious Nora also promotes values we all wish to engender in our children: loyalty, honesty and perseverance.
Sure sounds like the kinds of things we all want to instill in our children.
And what a great way to support a local author.
