Two local authors have penned new books that are now available in print and e-book.

Annie White has finished her debut novel No Reason to Stay under her pen name AK White. The new fiction work, published by FriesenPress, is set in the West Kootenays and follows Alexandra Wainwright, who at age 49 is gradually succumbing to illness. She retraces her steps through the decades of a life well-lived. It's described as a tender exploration that brims with love and culminates with an illuminating discovery.

White, a Richmond resident, will launch her book Sunday, March 23 at 6 p.m. at Village Books in Steveston.

Richmond's colourful author, photographer and entertainment Dan Propp also has a new book to his name. The Postcard Photographer takes readers on a leisurely walk back to the 1960s. The first story in the book focuses on two lost individuals: one from Los Angeles and the other from Powell River. In Vancouver both discover their identities, passions and goals.

Though fiction, the two stories reflect Propp, who imparts many nostalgic memories as a photography student in 1960s in B.C.
