Jon Michael Riley Presents PhotoShoot at Malaprop's Book Store

Coming to Malaprop’s Book Store and Cafe, March 29th at 6 p.m. ~ Jon Michael Riley, author of PhotoShoot, an international thriller involving New York photographer, Channey Moran, who joins a group of mercenaries traveling to Somalia to rescue Americans taken by force from their sailboat in the Indian Ocean. 📷

Channey’s  job is to stage a fashion shoot as a camouflage for getting mercenaries in place to go after the pirates holding the Americans. The book borrows from Riley’s experience as a highly successful career photographer. Help celebrate this local author’s second book in this exciting series!

The true story behind this fictional rendition began when the 2009 hijacking of the MV Maersk Alabama caught Riley’s attention in 2010.  Inspired to write Channey’s next adventure, Riley investigated many resources including a memoir from survivors of a lengthy stay in the Somali bush and Jay Bahadur’s book about this time spent amongst Somali pirates.

Note to all attendees:  Come enjoy a great cup of coffee, great atmosphere and learn more about Channey Moran ~ how he came about in the mind of Jon Michael Riley ~ and where he is going in book #3.  Let Jon know that Judy sent you!
