With every stroke of the keyboard, Milwaukee-area writer J.F. Riordan dreams of her time in Door County. Her first trip on the Washington Island Ferry through Death’s Door 25 years ago inspired her North of the Tension Line series of books, which includes the title of the same name and “The Audacity of Goats.” Originally from the East coast, Riordan says there is something about Door County, particularly Washington Island, that seems magical to her.
Riordan is currently working on the third book in the North of the Tension Line series, which is expected to be at independent booksellers and online in 2017.
