Best-selling author Delia Owens has been receiving global attention for all the wrong reasons, as it has been revealed she is wanted for questioning over a murder committed in Zambia.
Owens, who shot to the top of the New York Times best seller list with her novel Where the Crawdads Sing, has been back in the public eye recently as her novel is being adapted into a film, and has garnered a lot of buzz.
However, as the spotlight has been placed back on the story, many people have noticed some strange parallels to Delia’s personal life and the protagonist in her novel.
Before Owens published Where the Crawdads Sing, she worked as a zoologist and conservationist in Africa alongside her husband Mark.
During the 1990s, the couple were focusing on battling poachers in Zambia’s North Luangwa National Park, as detailed in Owens’ second book, The Eye of the Elephant, which was released in 1992.
In 1996, the couple then featured a documentary about their work, as they had established a reputation of being ruthless in their efforts to stop the poachers.
