Rolynn Andersonabout this book: Writing FEAR LAND was my Everest climb, my 100 mile cross-country race. I took on the many shades of anxiety in a suspense novel, and added a tinge of paranormal, all because I wanted to understand how the brain deals with trauma. My characters: an Army Major, suffering after two tours in Afghanistan; a child, born highly anxious; a mother nurtured to be a worrier; a child psychiatrist with an aversion to adults. The plot: Pit my traumatized characters against corrupt foes.
Leave it to me to take on the topic of anxiety, only to find myself on tenterhooks.
But the topic is important and I wanted to understand my own experiences with trauma, so I forged ahead, changing my plot countless times and adding new bits of research at every turn. Early on I learned that neuroscience as well as screening devices might be used to counsel men and women out of combat if they were prone to suffer from trauma. Recent studies tell me I'm not far off the mark with this approach, but deeper analysis must be done to save our soldiers and others burdened by anxiety. I am dedicating a portion of my earnings on FEAR LAND to the Brain Research Foundation (www.theBRF.org), to continue this important work.
