Norma Huss


At 85 I call myself the Grandma Moses of mystery. Grandma Moses was a primitive artist who became famous at the age of 80 and painted until she was 101. Since my mother lived to the age of 103, I hope to do as well with mystery. (I don't know how many grandchildren she had, but I have eight, and one great-grandchild.)

My husband and I spent many years sailing on Chesapeake Bay and beyond. Since those days on our boat inspired my writing career, both mysteries take place near the bay. Both books are available as trade paperbacks through Amazon and, by order, through bookstores such as Barnes & Noble. And, of course, the e-book is available in all formats right here.

I have one non-fiction, A KNUCKLEHEAD IN 1920s ALASKA. It follows the adventures of a nineteen-year-old, (actually my father) who went to Alaska hoping to earn college money. During the following three summers and one winter, he encountered danger and adventure---but not much money. This book is available at Amazon.

A young adult ghost mystery, CHERISH, is also available at Amazon. (As a grandmother, I just had to finish this before ALL my grandchildren were too old to read it.)

  • The Road to Self-Publishing on March 26, 2012

    Proof of the pudding, so to speak. I've successfully self-published two books, with Kaye's help.
  • 25 Years in the Rearview Mirror: 52 Authors Look Back on Sep. 08, 2012

    As one of the 52 authors included in this book, I may be a bit biased, but I found all of the essays interesting, and the book to be organized exceptionally well. (Love that cover too.) 25 Years in the Rearview Mirror is a book designed to dip into according to your mood.
