SOUTH POINT — A South Point teen has won an award for her first novel.

Hannah Boggs, 18, a senior with Ohio Connections Academy, an online school, won the award for Best Paranormal Book in the genre categories from the 2019 Indies Today Awards for her novel, “Violent Delights.”

Boggs, who is a self-published author, says the book is the first of a planned trilogy, with the second installment, “Fire and Powder,” now finished and set for publication in coming months.
