The Hero Gene – Author Event

Do you have The Hero Gene?
School Holiday Special! Secure your place at this free event with Steven J Doyle, The Hero Gene author, and The Book Warehouse Coffs Harbour.
Order a coffee or refreshment on arrival and expect the unexpected in this interactive session. Local author Steven J Doyle will explore how The Hero’s Journey, a term coined by philosopher Joseph Campbell, touches our everyday lives and profoundly influences authors, game designers, and movie makers.
Steven will discuss the creative process behind his new young adult Sci-Fi novel titled The Hero Gene – the story of a teenager’s deadly adventures to save Earth from carbon-breathing galactic invaders. The Book Warehouse will run a bookstall, and a Q&A followed by a book signing opportunity will wrap up proceedings.
