WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — If you like Nicholas Sparks, check out author Tom Gill.
His newest book “Return to Emerald Isle” is in stores now. It’s a fiction story that covers familiar ground, from downtown Wilmington to all the way up to the Crystal Coast. It’s the story of a young marine’s widow with a teen son who returns to the town of Emerald Isle.
Gill is a retired Air Force officer so he draws from his own military experience and time in eastern North Carolina.
His first book, “The Bridge” is a prequel. It was released early last year and deals with a true life story.
Gill stopped by Good Morning Carolina to talk about his books and the personal connections they have to his life. His newest release is both a love story and family tragedy. He says they are great summer reads.
Gill is holding a book signing this Saturday in Wilmington. Barnes & Noble in Mayfaire is hosting a meet and greet from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
