Connecticut Terrain: Main Character in Upcoming Novel



My upcoming novel, THE FALCON, THE WOLF, AND THE HUMMINGBIRD, takes place in southern Connecticut around where my sisters live. Every summer I go to visit and we bike through the forests and swim in the ocean on beaches along Long Island Sound.


So besides the characters in my story, based on Native American tribes in the area — Golden Hill Paugussett, Mashantucket Pequot, Mohegan, Paucatuck Eastern Pequot, and Schaghticoke — the terrain plays an integral role. Specifically, the tidal marshes, the oak forests, the ridges and the Connecticut River.


The land is absolutely beautiful!


In which of your favorite novels does the landscape play a key role?


Me: THE ENGLISH PATIENT by Michael Ondaatje.
