Rolynn Andersonabout this book: I cruised to Petersburg, Alaska in my trawler two years ago, unaware that the town was full of Norwegians (my heritage). In the early 1900's, Norwegian men, displaced in their homeland, immigrated to Alaska to fish. LIE CATCHERS was born out of my surprise and delight in discovering this charming fishing town, full of people who looked like me, ate food I liked, said 'uff da' the way I say it. Finding this town, set below the majestic LeConte Glacier, got my writing juices flowing!
Some of Petersburg's Norwegians married Tlingit (native) women. In a gift store in Petersburg, Alaska, I met the owner, who happened to be a "Tlingwegian." She was blonde and blue-eyed, but with a warm complexion. My heroine was born with that encounter.
I found out that Petersburg, Alaska, was burdened with a 1932 unsolved homicide. What's more, the man murdered was an important Chinese man…in a Norwegian town. That caught my interest. I wondered if I could solve an old crime and a new one, comparing the way crimes were handled in 1932 to how we work them today…and somehow tie in both crimes. Yes! I was drafting the novel before our boat left the marina dock.
