Local author Don Coldsmith passed away June 25, 2009. He was a great friend of ours, and we were sad to say goodbye. Don loved stopping by the store and signing his books, and always had a joke to tell.
Don was a prolific writer, but over the years various of his titles have gone out-of-print (OOP). Never fear! We at Town Crier Bookstore frequently raid used bookstores to acquire copies of Coldsmith's older novels. If you're looking for a specific title, let us know and we'll track it down.
