An Amish community may seem an unlikely place to set a mystery novel. But author Linda Castillo has just completed her 13th thriller set in the fictional Amish town of Painter’s Mill, Ohio. In the Kate Burkholder detective series, a female detective who grew up Amish solves crimes that intrude upon the peaceful community. Her latest book “Outsider” tells a story of police corruption and long buried secrets. Linda talks about her fascination with the Amish community, her writing process and how she brings her characters and settings to life.
