Marian E. Lindberg
Marian Lindberg began her career as a newspaper reporter in Buffalo, NY, covering crime, government, environmental issues, and the occasional stunt involving Niagara Falls. After obtaining a law degree from Columbia, she clerked for a remarkable federal district court judge in Washington, DC, the late Harold H. Greene. Over the next 20 years she represented clients as varied as journalists, a man on death row, and consumer goods producers. In 2005, Lindberg joined The Nature Conservancy, where she is currently Conservation and Communications Specialist. She works with scientists and advocates to preserve lands and waters in the face of climate change and other large-scale threats.
"The End of the Rainy Season" is a true story based on years of research. It began as a novel, until Lindberg was ready to investigate what really happened to her forbear, Walter Lindberg, in the rainforests of Brazil. She is grateful to the many generous Brazilians who assisted her.
Lindberg is currently working on a book about someone else's family, involving an Army officer's court-martial for homoerotic acts in 1914.
