New author

The debut novel of Phillips area author Suzie Bocock has been nominated for an Author Academy Award, which will be given out on Oct. 25.

When inspiration strikes, there's no holding back Suzie Bocock. After spending most of her life working and caring for others, 70-year-old Bocock says the future is hers.

Last year, Bocock penned and published her debut novel, “A Thousand Miles From Yesterday.” The book, a Christian mystery, tells the story of two people thrown together by curious happenstance. With one fleeing everyday existence after a family tragedy and the other escaping a drug cartel, the unlikely couple find their way to northern Wisconsin where the story unfolds. The tale brings the characters to Phillips, where readers will encounter several familiar landmarks and local businesses on the pages.
