Freelance journalist Emily Merton has moved back to her hometown. For the first time in seventeen years she will be spending August 16 there—the anniversary of the day her childhood innocence died. While doing her best to block the date from her mind, she gets an assignment that throws her right back into the horror of that day and threatens to take away the one thing she has managed to hold on to since that time: her pride. But will it also give her an opportunity to solve the riddles that have plagued her all these years? And does she even want to solve them?
BIOGRAPHY Norwegian-Brazilian author. I'm currently living in Norway but have had stays in Sweden, the United States, and United Kingdom. Besides writing & reading, I'm interested in globetrotting, soccer, philosophy, and computer programming.
When Worms Abandon Their Burrows is my first novel. The setting was chosen after I worked as a park ranger in Hannibal, Missouri, for one day as part of a charity program.
