Penny Fey Charity Raffle

Earlier this year we lost a talented member of our story telling community, Penny Fey (pen name for Michelle Hansen). Penny, age 36, and her son Justin, age 16, were in a car accident that claimed both of their lives. In this tragedy Penny left behind her parents, sister and her youngest child, Jasmine (AKA Jazz, AKA Kat Fey, age 12, also an aspiring artist/writer).

Penny was a supportive member of local author events and expos. She wrote for the Boston Examiner and was an avid artistic blogger. Most notably she was a driving force for the independent publication “Summerlands” as writer and editor. She also had many other works ready or near ready for publication including a collection of horror short stories and a sci-fi romance novel under the imprint Lightning Powered Productions. Penny was a medical technician, firefighter, caretaker, nature lover and very devoted Mom.

The New England Authors Expo is honored to dedicate the 2013 Expo to Penny Fey and her son Justin. During the Expo we will hold a charity raffle benefiting her family to help defray funerary costs and to set-up a college-bound fund for Jazz. Any donation is appreciated!
