Aug, 2018 Issue

The story behind local author Jean Hegland’s novel, Into the Forest, began with a sleepless winter night in her home in the forest west of Healdsburg, where she lives with her husband, Douglas Fisher. “I woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I decided to tell myself a story. The story let me think deeply and imaginatively about the natural world, the future and sisters,” says Hegland, who doesn’t have a sister, but was then a mother of two young daughters, ages one and three. At the time, living in the forest was still a new experience for them, and Hegland admits she was concerned about their situation. “We didn’t know anything about the forest, and with two young daughters I worried about the future.”
