The author's bio:
Anne E. Beidler
"Artist and College Art Professor specializing in Printmaking Artist Books and Asian Art."
I think there may be more than one person with that name :
ANNE E. BEIDLER lives in the seaport of Seattle, not far from members of her family. Her Pacific home is a continent away from Nantucket, the Alantic seaport where, more than a century and a half ago, the whaling ship Essex sailed off on its ill-fated sea hunt. With a doctorate in educational research, she is a lifetime history buff. Eating Owen is her first historical novel.
She wrote two books in the same year?
