Mary Richardson Daheim started spinning stories before she could spell. Daheim has been a journalist, an editor, a public relations consultant, and a freelance writer, but fiction was always her medium of choice. In 1982, she launched a career that is now distinguished by more than sixty novels. In 2000, she won the Literary Achievement Award from the Pacific Northwest Writers Association. In October 2008, she was inducted into the University of Washington's Communication Alumni Hall of Fame. Daheim lives in her hometown of Seattle and is a direct descendant of former residents of the real Alpine, which existed as a logging town from 1910 to 1929, when it was abandoned after the mill was closed. The Alpine/Emma Lord series has created interest in the site, which was named a Washington State ghost town in July 2011. An organization called the Alpine Advocates has been formed to preserve what remains of the town as a historic site.
THE ALPINE KINDRED "Witty one-liners and amusing characterizations." -Publishers Weekly THE ALPINE LEGACY "Daheim writes . . . with dry wit, a butter-smooth style and obvious wicked enjoyment. . . . Kick off your shoes by the fire and get cozy with the latest by Mary Daheim." -Portland Oregonian THE ALPINE MENACE "This is good, solid storytelling-marvelous escapist entertainment." -Tacoma News Tribune
