Gail Notestine

Gail Notestine will visit City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, February 24th at 3:00pm. She'll read from her children's book, The Seven Foot Long Dog: A Molly and Grainne Story. 

In the series, Molly O’Hare is finally getting the puppy that she has waited for. Join Molly as she gets, trains, and settles in with her new puppy. Share the adventures of living with a dog that is the size of a small pony, in a house the size of a school bus. Find out what secret her dog has hidden. Laugh and cry with the adorable duo of Molly and Grainne as Molly learns that a best friend doesn’t have to have two legs.

Ms. Notestine is a notable author who has been writing for much of her life. She has garnered considerable recognition for her literary contributions, many of which have been written for children. Perhaps most recognizable is her Molly & Grainne series, which comprises seven books for children ages eight through 13. Among them include "The Seven Foot Long Dog," "Cowboy Tails," "Jingle in the Jungle" and "Olé Molé: A Molly and Grainne Story." The most recent in its series, "Mystery Key: The Adventures of Molly and Grainne," was released in December 2023.

Besides her children's books, Ms. Notestine has published several adult-themed books. Some of Ms. Notestine's books have notably been published under the pen names Elizabeth Aaron, Echo Bird, and Dustbunny Too.

A native of Newark, New Jersey, Ms. Notestine has since resided in Texas, Mexico, and other parts of the country before settling in North Carolina. She has also enjoyed a career as the former president of a holding company, an accountant for an oil and gas company, co-owner of a jewelry business, and cattle and horse rancher. Additionally, she had the opportunity to manage a parrot rescue in Florida, which involved caring for 35 macaws.
