Read full description of the books:
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Fog, No One You Know is "a thoroughly riveting literary thriller" (Booklist, starred review).
All her life Ellie Enderlin had been known as Lila’s sister. Until one day, without warning, the shape of their family changed forever. Twenty years ago, Lila, a top math student at Stanford, was murdered in a crime that was never solved. In the aftermath of her sister’s death, Ellie entrusted her most intimate feelings to a man who turned the story into a bestselling true crime book—a book that both devastated her family and identified one of Lila’s professors as the killer.
Decades later, two Americans meet in a remote village in Nicaragua. Ellie is now a professional coffee buyer, an inveterate traveler and incapable of trust. Peter is a ruined academic. And their meeting is not by chance. As rain beats down on the steaming rooftops of the village, Peter leaves Ellie with a gift—the notebook that Lila carried everywhere, a piece of evidence not found with her body. Stunned, Ellie will return home to San Francisco to explore the mysteries of Lila’s notebook, filled with mathematical equations, and begin a search that has been waiting for her all these years. It will lead her to a hundred-year-old mathematical puzzle, to a lover no one knew Lila had, to the motives and fate of the man who profited from their family’s anguish—and to the deepest secrets even sisters keep from each other. As she connects with people whose lives unknowingly swirled around her own, Ellie will confront a series of startling revelations—from the eloquent truths of numbers to confessions of love, pain and loss.
A novel about the stories and lies that strangers, lovers and families tell—and the secrets we keep even from ourselves—Michelle Richmond’s new novel is a work of astonishing depth and beauty, at once heartbreaking, provocative, and impossible to put down.

Read information about the authorThank you for stopping by my Goodreads page! I grew up in Mobile, Alabama, the middle of three sisters. After attending the University of Alabama, I worked a number of odd jobs around the South before enrolling in the MFA program in creative writing at the University of Miami. From Miami I moved to New York City, and finally to San Francisco with my husband in 1999. I've published four novels, including The Year of Fog, and two story collections. My new novel, THE MARRIAGE PACT, will be out in July.
THE MARRIAGE PACT is a psychological thriller about a young professional couple who get caught up in a worldwide marriage cult that promises them a happy, lasting marriage. When I set out to write The Marriage Pact, I wanted to do something I hadn't tried before. I had to let go of all of my notions of "what would I do?" and just let the characters be themselves and get into all kinds of trouble.

I like to write about ordinary people in crisis: a kidnapping (The Year of Fog), a hostage situation (Golden State), a decades-old murder that became a true crime sensation (No One You Know), and now THE MARRIAGE PACT. I enjoy pushing characters past the limits of everyday life, seeing how they react to trauma and, in the case of THE MARRIAGE PACT, to a threat much bigger and more powerful than themselves. One of the things I find challenging and exciting about writing fiction is allowing my characters to act in questionable ways that make sense to them at the moment. Characters, like children, need the freedom to make their own bad decisions.
My novels are often set in San Francisco and the Bay Area, where I've made my home, but my stories and novels also take inspiration from many of the places I've lived and traveled. My story collection HUM (2014) features Americans caught up in espionage, surveillance, and all manner of marital crimes.

Back story: I knew I wanted to be a writer for almost as long as I can remember, way back when I was a kid growing up in Alabama. I used to write skits to perform for my parents with my two sisters. After graduating from a huge public school in downtown Mobile, I studied journalism and creative writing at the University of Alabama, then worked in advertising, as well as in restaurants and a tanning salon (!) for a few years before enrolling in an MFA program in creative writing. I bounced around the South for a while and lived in New York City for a couple of years, with a brief work stint in Beijing, before settling in Northern California in 1999. I've been writing here in the fog ever since.
My first book, The Girl in the Fall-Away Dress was a short story collection that I wrote during my years waitressing and doing other odd jobs in Knoxville and Atlanta. My first novel, Dream of the Blue Room, was inspired by my time in Beijing. My second novel, The Year of Fog, gathered many rejections before being acquired by a young editor at Bantam. The Year of Fog was a life-changing book in that in allowed me to connect with readers in ways I'd never quite imagined, and it gave me the freedom to pursue writing full time. Writing is my dream job. It's a job I do alone in a quiet room, but because it allows me to connect with readers, it never feels lonely.
