Valerie Gribben's novels earn praise
LAMP alumnus Valerie Gribben is going to be one of the featured artists at the Alabama Book Festival this year. She completed the first novel between her sophomore and junior years at LAMP. Fairytale did so well that her publisher contracted with her to complete the trilogy, The Fairytale which includes The Emperor’s Realm and The Three Crowns. She is currently about to begin her Pediatrics Residency at Stanford University after having completed the 6-year Early Medical School Acceptance Program at UAB. She completed the two other novels in the trilogy during this time. Here is the link to her bio at the festival.
