Meridian native publishes first young adult novel

MERIDIAN —     Meridian native Ken Nobles released his first novel in April, a young adult series titled "Hunter’s Oath Book 1: Rook." The book debuted at No. 13 on Amazon’s “Hot New Releases” list.

    The first in a three-part series, "Hunter’s Oath" is a fantasy novel set in our modern world, where fairies, trolls, Bigfoot, and a number of mythical creatures secretly inhabit the earth right alongside humans. It is the world of 15-year-old Callie Cooper, a Hunter working for the Organization for the Research, Investigation and Observation of Neo-mythical creatures (O.R.I.O.N.).  This top-secret organization is charged with the task of maintaining the delicate balance between Neos (creatures of myth) and humans.

    Book II in the series will be released later this year.      Nobles is a true native of Meridian – growing up in Meridian public schools, attending Oak Hill Baptist Church (formerly Oakland Heights) and graduating from Meridian High School in 1989.  

    “I am proud to be from the South and proud to say I’m from Mississippi,” Nobles said.  

    “Meridian High School was where I first discovered I had a love for writing. Mrs. Faye Edwards taught a creative writing class when I was a junior. My friends and I loved that class, and I learned a great deal. In fact, Mary Henley Mayfield, also a published author, was in that class as well. It was a great experience for all of us.”

    Nobles also attended Meridian Community College before continuing his education at William Carey College, where he majored in biblical studies and English.

    After college, Nobles attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he earned his master’s degree in Christian education. He now serves as secondary principal for Trinity Christian Academy in Willow Park, Texas.

    Nobles can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
