About the Author
Blythe Woolston s first novel, The Freak Observer, won the William C. Morris Debut Fiction Award. About Black Helicopters, she says, Suicide bombings shock me and confuse me. What triggers that decision? What makes a person become a weapon? It s a terrible choice a terrorist s choice but it is also the choice of a human being with a mind and a heart and a life before that moment. Every suicide bomber is a human being, just like me. When I understood that, I started writing Black Helicopters. Blythe Woolston lives in Billings, Montana.
