Marian E. Lindberg
Marian Lindberg began her career as a newspaper reporter in Buffalo, New York, covering crime, local government, environmental issues, and the occasional stunt involving Niagara Falls. After obtaining a law degree from Columbia, she practiced media law in Washington, DC and New York City. She now works as Senior Staff Writer for The Nature Conservancy.
"The End of the Rainy Season" is based on a family story and years of research, including help provided to the author by many generous people in Brazil, some of whom took on Lindberg's search as though it was their own.
