Talk with Diane B. Saxton - "Peregrine Island"

Set on a privately owned island in the middle of Long Island Sound, Diane B. Saxton's award-winning
novel PEREGRINE ISLAND is a psychologically complex mystery that interweaves the stories of three generations of women, one valuable painting, the artist who created it, and those who would do anything to
possess it--even kill.

About the author:
*DIANE B. SAXTON *was a journalist with *Vanity Fair, Holiday Magazine, Huffington Post* and *Greenwich Review*, and covered everything from torture victims to psychics, animal rights activists, exotic travel, and movie producers.

A new chapter opened up for her after interviewing Amnesty International US founder Hannah Grunwald. Alarmed that the stories of incredible and influential lives such as Grunwald’s could be lost as the
Greatest Generation passes, Saxton began capturing their histories and complied them into a 1,000 page biographical collection, which became the inspiration for her next novel. She brings the same gift for storytelling with illuminating subtext to her debut novel *PEREGRINE ISLAND*.

Saxton divides her time between New York City and the Berkshires, where she lives with her husband, doges and horses.
