Lynda Drews, a Wisconsin native and dedicated runner, gave the commencement speech at her college Alma mater. One lesson she shared was “to journal your life.” That’s what Lynda did after she made the decision to retire from her global marketing career. Her first book: RUN AT DESTRUCTION (Lynda’s True Crime Memoir, published in 2009, about the mysterious death of her running partner) was the outcome.
Ann Rule, the best-selling true crime author, endorsed RUN AT DESTRUCTION saying it was “Wonderfully written… a must for True Crime readers.” Publisher’s Weekly said: “the author and victim’s shared moments, and Drews’ feelings of emptiness in the decades since, are remarkable.”
Lynda’s second book, CIRCLE OF INNOCENCE, is a Mystery/Suspense novel that takes place in Door County: the “Cape Cod” of Wisconsin. This setting is where Lynda and her husband, Jim, spend nearly every weekend, but they still call Green Bay, Wisconsin “home.” It’s where they’ve lived since the mid-seventies while raising their two sons. Their family also helped launch the local running movement. The city now hosts the nation's fifth largest 10K, the Bellin Run.
