Evan Maxwell isn't new to the romance community. His wife is Ann Maxwell, who writes under her own name as well as under the pen name Elizabeth Lowell. Together, Evan and Ann have written the Fiddler & Fiora mystery series as A. E. Maxwell. The Season of the Swan is Evan's second solo novel.
The love story is told with a refreshingly male bent, yet it is unlike most male romances (Love Story, Bridges of Madison County, and The Notebook) because it actually has a happy ending! Kate Saarinen is a concert violinist who escapes the Pacific Northwest to find fame and fortune in New York City. At a pivotal point in her musical career, Kate wants to offer young musicians the opportunity she didn't have, so she accepts a week-long teaching position in a country school near the town where she grew up. While she's in Washington State, Kate falls in love with a burly violin building ex-fisherman, and is forced to face the demons that have haunted her throughout her adulthood.About the Author:
Evan Maxwell is the author of 45 books, both fiction and nonfiction, including the Fiddler mystery series under the name A. E. Maxwell. He is a former reporter for The Los Angeles Times and lives in the San Juan Islands, WA.
