About My Business:


bout Lin Wilder- yes, now that the third novel is over half-written, I can tell the truth about why it took me so long to turn from non-fiction to fiction. For years I held the story of Margaret Craven close to my heart. Craven was sixty-five when her stunningly beautiful first novel, I Heard The Owl Call My Name was published, therefore I had plenty of time. Until I didn’t. The writing of a novel is so completely different from a textbook or chapter on specialized knowledge or an article about the methods of solving problems faced by everyone in the field that it’s hard to know where to start to convey just how humongous is the difference. Mostly, I think, it reduces to fear. ‘Sure I can write, I’ve written and published for my entire life’. ‘But’ (that wonderful acronym- behold the underlying truth) ‘can I write a compelling story? And when I do, will it end up revealing things about me that maybe I don’t want made public.’? Not that writing non-fiction is easy. It isn’t. Just that the dream of writing novels felt too big or I was too little-maybe not crazy enough or unhappy enough. So I persuaded myself that I really didn’t want to write that novel, it was merely the dream of the kid English major I had been many years ago. I loved the research that always preceded an article or chapter or the textbook, the high that came with reading, re-writing and reading again, “Yes, this is the best I can do…it’s clear, it’s accurate, its good.” Until one day on a hike in the mountains behind my house a character named Dr. Lindsey McCall appeared in my head and heart and wouldn’t let go. Followed by an investigative reporter named Kate Townsend. And so it began.
