Author, card maker to be at Borealis Books Dec. 10

Suzanna Campbell and Ernest Schanilec, a greeting card maker and an author, respectively, will be at Borealis Books in Wadena on Dec. 10.

Vergas author Ernest Francis Schanilec and greeting card creator Suzanna Campbell will appear at Borealis Books in Wadena starting at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 10.

Schanilec is the author of "Ice Lord," his ninth in a series of books that also include "Blue Darkness," "The Towers," "Danger in the Keys," "Purgatory Curve," "Gray Riders," "Sleep Six," "Night Out in Fargo" and "Gray Riders II."

Schanilec said in "Ice Lord," one of the characters interprets the Bible to believe that ice fishermen shouldn't be on the ice on Sundays, "so he goes out and attacks them," Schanilec explained.

Campbell said she started creating greeting cards while accompanying Schanilec on his book tour, and she hits on a lot of familiar themes with all of her creations.

"A lot of nature and woods," she said. "A lot of spiritual cards."

She said she has about 60 different cards at this point.
