About the Author

Marian Lindberg grew up on Long Island, attended high school in Concord, MA, and began her career as a reporter for The Buffalo Courier-Express covering the criminal justice system, local government, and environmental issues. Lawyers proved to be some of her most informed sources, leading Lindberg to become a lawyer herself. She went on to represent writers, reporters and other communicators and participate in high profile first amendment and civil rights cases. In 2005 she began handling land preservation deals for an international environmental organization and traveled to Brazil to research a family story of murder in the Amazon. The resulting book, The End of the Rainy Season: Discovering My Family's Hidden Past in Brazil won an Elle readers' prize. In her latest book, Scandal on Plum Island: A Commander Becomes the Accused, Lindberg applies her legal and research skills to tell the little-known story of an unmarried Army major portrayed as an out-of-control "homo-sexualist" in a sensational 1914 court-martial on a small island off the eastern end of Long Island.

Reviews

"Scandal on Plum Island is an intriguing and deeply-felt story, well told and well researched with a timely and timeless theme. The insular setting of Plum Island and the insular world of the U.S. Army combine to make this a fascinating and unique tale that reads like a legal thriller. Social justice meets true-life suspense. You can't put this one down." --Nelson DeMille, best-selling author of Plum Island
"An amazing and important story which will surprise many people (as it did me) . . . A meaningful story with relevance today" --Ann Northrop, host of cable TV show "Gay USA"
"What an interesting tale, revealing how fragile and precarious is our sense of masculinity, and how the gender police can test even the most decent of men." --Michael Kimmel, SUNY Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies Executive Director, Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities
