GLENWOOD – Local author Larry K Morphew took time to sign his books Friday, July 29, at the Bainum Library in Glenwood.
Better known as “Larry K” by listeners of KLAZ/KBHS radio in Hot Springs. Larry retired from the airwaves after 40 years in broadcasting to take a turn at the printed page. He published his first book, “Country Folk”, in 2021. His second novel, “The Willows Never Sleep” has since released.
“Country Folk” is based on true events which occurred in the Langley community in the early and mid 1900’s. Many of which include stories of his family which consisted of 11 children. His family would move to Montgomery County where he graduated from Norman High School in 1968. He admits that his writing is a reflection of his upbringing.
When asked why he turned to the keyboard after stepping away from the microphone, Larry shared that writing and publishing a novel was a bucket list item of his. With two books in as many years published, his bucket might get full soon.
His second novel, “The WIllows Never Sleep,” is a work of fiction set in the late 1930s offering suspense, humor and romance. The fictional community of WIllow Bend is also set in Pike County.
Both of Larry’s books can be purchased on Amazon and other online sites. They can also be purchased locally at the Racehorse Convenience Store in Glenwood.
