About the Author

William L. Sullivan is the author of four novels and a dozen nonfiction books. He grew up in Salem, Oregon, completed his B.A. degree in English at Cornell University under Alison Lurie, studied linguistics at Germany’s Heidelberg University, and earned an M.A. in German at the University of Oregon. He reads in a dozen languages, including Danish, Norwegian, and Old Norse. He undertook seven voyages to Scandinavia while researching Nordic sagas and Viking history for The Ship in the Hill.
Sullivan is known in the American West as the author who backpacked more than a thousand miles across Oregon’s wilderness in 1985. His journal of that adventure, "Listening for Coyote," has since been chosen one of Oregon’s "100 Books," the most significant books in Oregon history. In summer he writes at the log cabin that he and his wife Janell Sorensen built by hand in the wilds of Oregon’s Coast Range, more than a mile from roads, electricity, and telephones. The story of that cabin retreat is the subject of his other adventure memoir, "Cabin Fever." The rest of the year they live in Eugene, Oregon, where he volunteers to promote libraries and literature.
