The Role of Place in Fiction

Wild Mountain begins with a spring ice jam in the river that smashes into the covered bridge. Then throughout the story spring slowly emerges in this Vermont mountain town and in the lives of its people. My readers have said that they like the sense of place, the presence of nature and the environment, in my novels. So I’m excited to join in a panel at the Burlington Book Festival on the role of place in fiction and poetry. If you’re in or near Burlington on September 16th, come join us for an interesting discussion.
