Local author Cinda Williams Chima’s first book, The Warrior Heir, was published in 2006. Since then, she’s penned two follow-ups to her young-adult fantasy series, which tell stories of modern-day magical warriors, adolescent love and ancient forces. After the last book in the trilogy was released in 2008, Chima launched another series, Seven Realms,with last year’s The Demon King. The tale continues in the fall with the release of the second book in the series, The Exiled Queen. Chima talks about her work at 4 p.m. at Mac’s Backs Paperbacks (1820 Coventry Rd., Cleveland Hts., 216.321.2665). Admission is free. — Michael Gill
