GREENVILLE, MS - Two Mississippi authors will sign their newest books this weekend at McCormick Book Inn.

On Saturday, Darden North will sign his third medical thriller, “Fresh Frozen,” from 2 to 4 p.m.; and Kathy Chase Young will sign her children's book, “In a Mississippi Winter,” on Sunday, from 2 to 3 p.m.

North, who grew up in Cleveland and is an obstetrician-gynecologist in Jackson, has also written “House Call” and “Points of Origin.”

Released in November, “Fresh Frozen” is set in Canton and Jackson, a departure from North's previous books, which were based in fictional towns, North said.

He said the plot centers around a New York physician who moves to Mississippi to open a state-of-the-art infertility clinic in Canton. The plot twists when a character hopes to steal the embryos of Hollywood movie star seeking treatment at the clinic.

In Fresh Frozen, a young policeman and his tormented wife fail miserably to produce a family, finding themselves outcasts of the renewed baby boom sweeping the United States. However, there is one last hope for them: a catalogue of human embryo and egg donors peddled by a woman whose standards are easily dismissed for the right price. Pursuing their futile attempts to become parents has nearly cost the wife he…

Darden North keeps a list of people he plans to invite to the premiere party when Hollywood turns one of his novels into a movie.


"If you're going to do what it takes to write books, you might as well dream big," says North, a Jackson ob-gyn for the past 23 years who has just released his third medical mystery thriller, Fresh Frozen (Ponder House Press, $26.95).


North, 52, has chosen to publish his books through independent sources, which used to mean certain death for a book. That has changed, in part, because of the success of books that were originally self-published.
