Columbia fire fighter publishes first novel

COLUMBIA, MS (WDAM) -

A Columbia Fire Fighter and local young adults pastor is celebrating the publication of his first novel.

Kevin Crozier has been a fire fighter for nine years and is the Youth and Young Adults Minister at Foxworth Baptist Church. He says it took him about a year and a half to complete the crime and suspense novel that maintains Christian values at it core. The book, Reapers, was published by Westbow Press. Crozier says he's always been an avid reader and wrote the book to engage readers with a positive message. 

Crozier said Monday, "It's a great feeling of accomplishment and I've had so far nothing but positive feedback, and I just hope the message behind the book can affect somebody in a positive way. The mystery part of it, trying to figure out what's going on, and who did it; that's always been very interesting to me and that's the kind of novels that I like to read."

The book is available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Crozier says he is planning a local book signing at the Columbia Library.
