Phillips County native Lena Jo (Rodeman) McCoy will be in Holyoke Saturday, Aug. 9, for a book signing of her publication, “Special Run.” She will be signing copies of her book at Storybrooke, Ink, located at 221 N. Interocean Ave., from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

“Special Run” is a paranormal mystery. The key question for the novel is, “If an animal spoke to you, would you listen?”

In McCoy’s story, botanist/psychokinetic Katrina Ormstead created a super hash—a variety of marijuana she calls MAGIC. Before she can share her successful medical findings with the scientific community, she’s murdered.

There is, however, one witness begging to come forward. Special is Katrina’s wolf-hybrid dog. She saw her mistress die. She wants revenge. Now she has to convince food photographer, animal psychic and Katrina’s best friend Wheat Keigwin of the same thing. Together, dog and woman dedicate themselves to solving the mystery behind Katrina’s death.

An agriculture journalist, McCoy has spent most of her life devoted to agriculture. She has long admired the works of animal behaviorist Temple Grandin, Cesar Millan, as well as the farmers and ranchers she’s written about. She is dedicated to the humane treatment of all animals.

When she is not playing servant to her two English bulldogs, McCoy finds herself at the computer writing the next story.

McCoy graduated from Holyoke High School in 1981 and from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science in agriculture journalism. She’s always worked in the media/writing/public relations industry, starting with a daily newspaper. After a few years, she landed at National Cattlemen’s as the editorial assistant for the National Cattlemen’s magazine.
