Congratulations to Stephanie Verni, professor of Business Communication, on the publication of her third independent novel, "Inn Significant." She has also authored "Baseball Girl" and "Beneath the Mimosa Tree," and along with her colleagues Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse, she is a co-author of "Event Planning: Communicating Theory and Practice," published by Kendall-Hunt.

Here's the scoop on the latest novel: "Two years after receiving the horrifying news of her husband Gil’s death, Milly Foster continues to struggle to find her way out of a state of depression. As a last-ditch effort and means of intervention, Milly’s parents convince her to run their successful Inn during their absence as they help a friend establish a new bed and breakfast in Ireland. Milly reluctantly agrees; when she arrives at the picturesque, waterfront Inn Significant, her colleague, John, discovers a journal written by her late grandmother that contains a secret her grandmother kept from the family. Reading her grandmother’s words, and being able to identify with her Nana’s own feelings of loss, sparks the beginning of Milly’s climb out of the darkness and back to the land of the living."

The novel is available via Amazon and Barnes and Noble in print and electronically.

Members of Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus' Advanced Event Planning class were invited to help work the Baltimore Business Journal's Book of Lists Gala at the Four Seasons Hotel in Baltimore on Feb. 9. With over 500 guests attending the event each year, the Baltimore Business Journal staff has consistently called upon Stevenson University's Business Communication majors to help work the gala. Students in the class arrived early, stayed late, and were of enormous help to the BBJ's event planners. (Photo courtesy of Dr.. Leeanne Bell McManus)
