Author Jason Born started applying himself seriously to writing just a few years ago, self-publishing his first historical novel in 2011.
He saw it as a way of bringing to life his interest in history, and putting some of his excess energy to use.
Since then he's sold more than 70,000 copies of his five novels with the sixth, "Wald Vengeance," just released on April 1. Born will be participating in the Local Author Book Fair Saturday from 1 to 4:30 p.m. at the Wood County Library in Bowling Green. (See story below.)
That will complete his Wald Trilogy culminating in the Battle of Teutoburg Forest where an alliances of  Germanic tribes decisively beat the Roman Army. His first three books chronicled the story of a Norseman that took him all the way to the shores of the New World.
Next, Born said, his literary travels will take him to the Dark Ages where he "explore that vacuum, the big power implosion."
