As a biologist and a librarian, Anna Loan-Wilsey tracked down mysteries every day. Now as the author of the historical, cozy Hattie Davish Mysteries Series, she enjoys creating them. Anna combines her love of history and travel by sending her crime-solving Victorian private secretary to a different historic town in each book: A Lack of Temperance,an Amazon #1 Historical Mystery bestseller, Anything But Civil (a Christmas mystery), A Sense of Entitlement (which hit #1 in iBooks: Historical Mystery) and A Deceptive Homecoming. Anna lived in New York, Texas, Finland and Canada before settling down in a Victorian farmhouse near Ames, Iowa with her inquisitive six year old, her old yellow dog and her very funny, very patient husband. She is an a ...more

So, since I'm currently working on a new series, it may be a while. I do know what the story will be and where it will take place, though. I just have to find the time to get it all down. Please stay tuned! (less)

I actually didn't cross-country ski (did a lot of it growing up in Upstate New York though) but enjoyed ice skating (including on the river that ran through the city I lived in) and hiking a great deal. It was definitely an adventure- trying new foods (I still make Karelian Pies), trying to learn the language, trying to get some Vitamin D when the sun never rose above three story buildings in the winter and trying to get some sleep when the sun never completely set in the summer. I will always have a special place in my heart for Finland and its people. I highly recommend at least a visit!(less)

I've spent a great deal of time in Washington D.C. of late, both physically and mentally. For those of you who have never visited D.C. or have only been there in the last hundred years, here is a "stranger's guide" map to Washington City from 1892 (Courtesy of the Library of Congress). This is the city that Hattie would have known. The detail is incredible and illustrates how little and how muc... Read more of this blog post »
