Charleston Author Kelly Owen Launches First Book of a Four-Novel series – The College Chronicles: Freshman Milestones

With the Holy City serving as an historic and scenic backdrop, groundbreaking first novel explores college life in its truest form while helping redefine the burgeoning “New Adult” genre


CHARLESTON, S.C.  – This summer, going “back to school” takes on a whole new meaning – and literary genre.


Written by Charleston author Kelly Owen, The College Chronicles: Freshman Milestones portrays a student lifestyle in which the subjects of study range from sex and sociology to beer and biology. The first novel series of its kind, the four-part work will also feature sophomore, junior and senior editions.


Divided into chapters named after college courses, the first book chronicles freshman Cadence Cooper's journey at the fictional Charlestowne College and throughout the historic and highly decorated Holy City. Incorporating much of Owen’s experiences as a student and even more as a college instructor, the book goes on sale on August 18 in paperback ($18.99) and in all e-book formats ($5.99). The book can be purchased via and through all major book retailers. (MORE)
