"People often ask me about the Feather series," Marianne Schlegelmilch
"They want to know if I am 'new age' or psychic, or somehow spiritually drawn to a world where feathers symbolize some deep, mystic aura."
"The truth is that the whole feather 'thing' began when a war veteran gave my husband--also a war veteran--a feather with a red dot painted on it and told him it would bring him peace from the war. There's more to it that that," she adds, "but that's the gist of it."
She goes on to explain that when she decided that writing mysteries might be fun, the feather seemed like a logical focal point around which she could weave her stories, and so she began with the first book in the series, Feather from a Stranger. Next came Two Tickets and a Feather, Driftfeather on the Alaska Seas, and Feather for Hoonah Joe. Her fifth book of the series, Feather for Forever, is due in late June 2016. Fingers are crossed she'll have them with her on June 25th. Hot off the presses!
