Koenig's Wonder is
a fictional portrayal of Linda Kuhlmann's family history that
began when her great-grandfather and his brother came to America
and were separated, never to meet again. Ms. Kuhlmann lives
in Oregon with her husband. This is her first novel.
In the midst of a manhunt for a serial killer in Dublin, Shannon O’Toole, a young sculptor, is forced to confront her past.
Surrounded by the seamy side of gallery life, she is drawn to her estranged father in Oregon and finds that crime and violence have followed her. Unknowingly, she has attracted the Dublin serial killer and is at risk for herself and those around her.
Note from Linda:
The spark for my novel, The Red Boots, came as I was driving from Oregon to Illinois to help my parents move from the house they built and lived in for over forty years.
As I drove, I was listening to Celine Dion's CD "A New Day Has Come." Most of the songs on that CD inspired scenes in the novel. In fact, it could be a soundtrack to the movie, if the novel is ever adapted to film.
"I'm Alive" inspired the story to begin in Ireland.
“A New Day Has Come” is a song that showed the freedom my character, Shannon, felt as she was driving to her father's, who she hadn't seen in over twenty years.
“Have You Ever Been In Love” reminded me of a moonlit motorcycle ride with my first love.
“At Last” is the song my main characters, Jake and Shannon, dance to in a small tavern in Joseph, Oregon.
