About the Author

Annie Lampman has a Master of Fine Arts in fiction and is a professor of honors creative writing at the Washington State University Honors College.

She lives in Moscow, Idaho, and for decades has backpacked into the depths of Hells Canyon.


"Sins of the Bees is a fascinating glimpse into the world of a paranoid doomsday cult, with echoes of The Handmaid's Tale--though this isn't science fiction. This heartfelt contemporary literary thriller brings together multiple timelines into a compelling whole, with elements of romance, suspense, and mystery intertwining. Annie Lampman is clearly a writer to watch."--Dan Chaon, National Book Award finalist
"Lush and sweeping in its language and its landscape, Sins of the Bees takes us to the heart of human need--for love, for family, for a reason to stay alive. Moving between the verdant Pacific Coast and the arid breaks of Hells Canyon, from the artist's reflective sensibility to the survivalist's absolute desire to own and control the people around him, Lampman weaves a story of destiny and desperation that pitches one woman's quest for paradise against the violent will of a man bent on domination and destruction."--Kim Barnes, Pulitzer Prize Finalist
"With stunning, poetic language, Lampman weaves a remarkable novel full of wisdom and hope. It's a contemporary cautionary tale that speaks to the dangers and devastation wrought by powerful, charismatic men--and to the women who resurrect themselves by rejecting and repudiating them. And at the story's core is a deep search for family connection. A marvelous, metaphorical and profound debut."--Buddy Levy, bestselling author of 'Labyrinth of Ice'
