Thanks to the yalsa-bk listserv for all the good updates. I am intrigued to read this book BECAUSE of this guy’s history. Weird.
“J.D. Bauer is an outspoken environmentalist who’s written a young
adult novel called Quest for Water. Incidentally, he’s also a serial
killer… Earlier this week, The Province reported that Bauer was
actually Charles Kembo, a Canadian man currently in prison for
murdering his wife, his mistress, his friend, and his stepdaughter. ”
