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.
