Florence, KY, April 10, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Hayley Mullins, Northern Kentucky resident and illustrator of Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape, attended a book signing at Turfway Park in Florence, Kentucky, on April 3, 2016, from 3:00-6:00 pm. Mullins offered to sign books and had copies signed by her and the author of the book, Miranda N. Prather, for sale. The signing took place during Turfway’s closing day that featured live racing, Dachshund and small dog racing and a raffle for a bottle of Maker’s Mark Bourbon autographed by Cincinnati Reds’ legend, Johnny Bench.
Mary Troilo, National Simulcast Director at Turfway Park, set up the event and stated that, “there was a crowd of people at the table so I feel there was a lot of interest” when she had some time to walk by the signing. In addition, Theosa Hoffeld, a fan of Blue Blue Sea, drove up for the event and had hoped to meet Prather in addition to Mullins. She said it was wonderful to meet Mullins and that “Blue Blue Sea's legacy will live forever in this book.”
Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape tells the life story of a blue-collar racehorse who overcame a devastating illness to survive and inspire thousands around the globe who were facing their own struggles. The book features playful writing and delightful pictures that bring the tale of Blue Blue Sea to life. Blue Blue Sea was no American Pharoah, but he became a hero just the same!
Hayley Mullins resides in Erlanger, Kentucky, where she is a high school senior at Heritage Academy. She is a self-taught artist, who is gaining a following due to her natural talent for catching a subject in whimsical ways. Upon graduation, the illustrator plans to attend Lipscomb University and study Visual Development and Animation.
Miranda N. Prather lived in Northern Kentucky from 1983 to 1993, when her family moved from New Orleans, LA, to Independence, KY. In Kentucky, Prather attended Kenton Elementary, Twenhofel Middle School and graduated from Simon Kenton High School. During her time in Kentucky, the author took horseback riding lessons and owned another off-track Thoroughbred named Beble.
Shoofly View Publications published Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape in late 2015. Since the book's release the company has been impressed with the success of the book and are looking forward to publishing more volumes in the series.
