Historic crime fiction celebrating bodacious American heroines

About the Author

Ana loves to write and read historical fiction about curious, ambitious, and totally bodacious women. Her historical mystery FANNY NEWCOMB & THE IRISH CHANNEL RIPPER won the IBPA Gold for Historical Fiction, and her short stories “Kate Chopin Tussles with a Novel Ending” and “Miss Evelyn Nesbit Presents” have appeared in crime fiction anthologies. Her short story "Trust No One" is included in the PLW's UNLOCKED anthology while "X Marks The Spot" appears in BENEATH THE MIDWINTER MOON anthology.

Many years ago, Ana inherited the scrapbooks, recordings, and theatrical ephemera of vaudeville songstress Elsie Clark, and used this treasure trove to create Viola Vermillion, the smart, sassy, and (what else?) totally bodacious vaudeville heroine of her latest release THE RED-HOT BLUES CHANTEUSE.

Ana, her husband, and Cappy-the-wonder-cat live in the beautiful Oakland, CA hills.
