The Wild Rose Press Website
Let me tell you about the fun I had in writing LIE CATCHERS.
how the story emerged. It’s 2011 and we’re cruising from Washington
State to Alaska on our trawler Intrepid. Never have we covered that
distance, much less navigated such difficult stretches of water.
when we arrived in Petersburg, Alaska, all the strangeness of a scary
virgin voyage fell away. Petersburg is FULL of Norwegians, just like my
husband and me. The little fishing town felt like home to us…relaxing
me to the point I began to enjoy our cruise rather than stress over it.
more Petersburg came with an unsolved crime from 1932 and a rich
history of Norwegians, Tlingit, Haida, Chinese and other folk trying
hard to make a living centered on fishing.
I had a novel churning
in my brain by the time I left the dock. When we returned to
Petersburg on our way south, I had a plot in my mind and research to do.
From then on, writing a suspense novel set in Petersburg, AK, became
my new passion. On a whim, I used family Norwegian names for most of
the characters in the novel.
Of course, as with all novels came
the stress of polishing the plot, editing the story and worrying about
sales. But never mind those pesky issues right now. I had so much fun
writing LIE CATCHERS. I’ll bask in that joy while the world has a look
at this mystery/suspense/romance novel!
