drews-00004I’m a runner… going on four decades. This path along the Fox River Trail in Green Bay, Wisconsin, is my daily route. Running remains my best means to contemplate and reflect on life.  It helps stimulate creativity providing fuel for my writing. Problems and stress gradually seem to shrink as I place one foot in front of the other – soaking in the sky, the foliage, the sounds of the river, and the greetings from others who approach. Running is an amazing experience!

This is my first book that will be released on August 7, 2009, but is available for preorder on Amazon.com or Target.com.

In 2004, I retired from my thirty year career at IBM. That’s when I began to write Run At Destruction: A True Fatal Love Triangle. It focuses on our close-knit Green Bay running group and the terrible tragedies that occurred in 1984.  Sean Ryan, a race director for many of the runs up in Brown and Door County placed the following in his weekly training newsletters:

RUNNER AUTHORS SUSPENSEFUL TRUE STORY
In the 1970’s, Lynda and Jim Drews helped launch Green Bay’s running movement. Lynda has written a narrative non-fiction book about actual events which took place within their running group during the 1980’s. As runners, we feel a sense of familial trust towards those who we train with.  Lynda’s book, Run at Destruction: A True Fatal Love Triangle, shows what happens when this trust is violated. Within the confines of Green Bay’s supportive running community, one person becomes a victim, one is the accused and another serves as the motive.

    Have you written a second book yet???

    1. Drews Says:

      Joan – I didn’t realize my email hadn’t been changed on this site so I wasn’t alerted to your note. My second book is fiction and will be out later this year. Right now the title is AFTER HER. If you have read Run at Destruction – you may want to tune into the Discovery ID channel in September. I am just writing a blog about it today. Also my Kindle version of Run at Destruction is now only $2.99 so tell your friends!

    Linda,

    When will there be another book signing in Green Bay? I missed your discussion at Ashwaubenon library. I would live to get a couple signed copies for Christmas. I really loved your writing.

    Sincerely,
    Andrea

      Andrea- Thanks for your comment. If you would like some signed copies of Run at Destruction I can provide them to you directly. I have boxes that I have at my home in Green Bay. If you are local I can drop them off with a personal inscription if you would like. You can send me a direct email to lyndadrews@gmail.com
