Genre


Norma threw herself into a passion for writing cozy mysteries. She was a member of Penn Writers, Sisters in Crime, and the Willow Valley Communities’ Writer’s Group. She expanded into blog writing for her own website where she adopted the nickname, “The Grandma Moses of Mystery.” The original Grandma Moses was about 80 years old when she had the first big showing of her folk art. Similarly, Norma’s first mystery, “Yesterday’s Body,” was published just before she turned 80. By age 90 she had published several more mysteries and a book of ten short stories. She also wrote a non-fiction retelling of her father’s true-life adventures in 1920’s Alaska.

Quotes by Norma Huss  (?)

“I'm not saying Abbott Computing Services suffered from an acute form of TV demographics, but, how did I get the job? I wasn't under 40. I wasn't anorexic slim. I didn't have a face that would launch a thousand ships, or even a rowboat. Of course, I was a temp, and the young and beautiful wouldn't have to look at me forever." Jo Durbin”
Norma Huss, Yesterday's Body
