Anna lives in Austin. She describes herself as a Texan, a tree-hugger, a bookworm, a dog person, a Trekkie, a history buff, a knitter, and a gardener. Why does she write? Because every book is a new world, even the next in a mystery series. New characters, new aspects of the setting. She had three careers in what she calls her “early years”—one for each degree: Waitressing went with her BA in Classics, of course. Software development to go with her MS in Computer Science. What did she do with the PhD in linguistics? She spent a year in rural Mexico writing a grammar of an indigenous language called Zoque. Oh, yes, and assistant professor and archivist.
Now she writes crime fiction—sixteenth century crime fiction.
