Come meet Mechanicsville author Barry Scott “Papagamer” Will and illustrator Ashton Leigh Will, at Fairmount Christian Church, on November 17, 2017 from 7-9p from in the back Worship Center lobby. Barry will perform a reading from his newest release, The Long-Lost Troll, the 2nd book in the Betty Sterling series. These books are set in the World of Berrea (, a fantasy world where using magic is as common as brushing your teeth. Themes of familial separation, cultural bias—and of course, a dragon—complicate the action as Betty and his team get to the bottom of a hostile takeover.

The Long-Lost Troll is a sequel to A Fine Basket of Fish, published by Valutivity Press in 2013. Barry, also known as Papagamer, has written over 20 award-winning books in the nonfiction video game domain. These books have generated millions of downloads. The World of Berrea series has diverted his focus to the fantasy/mystery genre. The books were both illustrated by Ashton Leigh Will (a Lee-Davis High School junior), with The Long-Lost Troll featuring both cover and chapter art.
