Norma Huss

Biography

It's been a wonderful week - giving away my two mysteries. I hope you like them! (And, if you wish, you may review them, whether you like them or not.) (But I hope you like them.)

See all about DEATH OF A HOT CHICK and YESTERDAY'S BODY below. -

Now about me, the author. At 84 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.)

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 a non-fiction out in paperback only. A KNUCKLEHEAD IN 1920s ALASKA relates the adventures of a nineteen-year-old 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.

Smashwords book reviews by Norma Huss

  • 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.
  • A Hostage to Heritage: A Michael Stoddard American Revolution Thriller on June 20, 2013

    Suzanne Adair has presented to the reading public another excellent historic mystery adventure. This book is Michael Stoddard's story. He's a British officer in America at the time of our Revolution. The earlier books in this series tell the stories of Americans during that time, and a few of the characters appear in all of the books. They, and this one as well, show the conflicting loyalties of people in our past, including the English Michael. Besides that, there's the main story of a missing young boy and how Michael and his second in command worked toward finding the boy while also following their commanding officer's orders. I won't say more, don't want to ruin the story for anyone. Highly recommended to lovers of history, and mystery.(
