On publication of Before I Let Go (Sourcebooks), bestseller Marieke Nijkamp talks exclusively to SciFiNow about a central character often sidelined: winter. Lost Creek, the setting in my new novel, is an eerie, strange community, that’s cut off from the rest of the world. A place where truth matters little and secrets are the preferred currency. A hint of Twin Peaks – set in a cruel and harsh Alaskan winter. Perhaps winter is an even more important character at that.
