Olivia Hawker

Through unexpected characters and vivid prose, Olivia Hawker explores the varied landscape of the human spirit. Olivia’s interest in genealogy often informs her writing. Her first two novels from Lake Union Publishing, The Ragged Edge of Night and One for the Blackbird, One for the Crow (2019), are based on true stories found within the author’s family tree. She lives in the San Juan Islands of Washington State, where she homesteads at Longlight, a one-acre microfarm dedicated to sustainable permaculture practices.

The Village Healer's Book of Cures (2023)
Jennifer Sherman Roberts
"A firecracker of a debut, packed with well-researched historical details, a tense mystery, and a few twists I never saw coming. Mary - a strong, independent woman trapped in a gender-centric panic - is the perfect character to take the reader on a perilous journey - one that could almost happen today."
The Orchid Hour (2023)
Nancy Bilyeau
"With a heroine you can't help rooting for, a fascinating cast of characters, and a tense, high-stakes mystery at its heart, this is a book you can't stop reading."
Light to the Hills (2022)
Bonnie Blaylock
"A bright and vibrant debut. Light to the Hills is a touching meditation on motherhood and the importance of community, especially during difficult times. Bonnie Blaylock will be one to watch in the realm of historical fiction."
