Wendy Parciak has a PhD in ecology from The University of Montana, and has worked as a wilderness ranger and biologist for numerous state and federal agencies. She also studied cello at the Julliard School of Music. She lives in Missoula, Montana with her husband, young son and three very active border collies. She wrote Requiem for Locusts, her first novel and recipient of the 2008 Montana Honor Book Award, to explore how people react when confronted by a psychotic individual whose life is more out of control than their own. She based much of her knowledge on her own mentally-ill sister, who was diagnosed after years of visual and auditory hallucinations with a genetic disorder called Velocardiofacial syndrome.
