Hear us Roar

In this podcast Madeleine and I discuss how working how working with a developmental editor for three years was instrumental in teaching her what she didn’t know about writing, how she researched the difficult subject matter including sexual abuse which occurs in her book, and how an early childhood experience resulted in her life-long interest in true crime.

Madeleine Van Hecke writes dark stories to help women navigate the shadow side of life. A psychologist, former college professor, and author of two nonfiction books, Van Hecke returned to writing fiction during her retirement years. Her debut novel, Once You Know, is a story of one flawed women’s struggle to survive betrayal and move herself and her family toward healing. Once You Know won the 2020 First Place in Women’s Fiction Incipere Award given by Entrada Publishing.
