Norma Huss


At 86 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 mystery series take place near the bay. I've also written a YA mystery (before my grandchildren outgrow such things. My non-fiction, title is A Knucklehead in 1920s Alaska. My books are available as trade paperbacks through Amazon and, by order, through bookstores such as Barnes & Noble. And, of course, the fiction e-books are (or will be) available in all formats right here.

  • 25 Years in the Rearview Mirror: 52 Authors Look Back on Sep. 08, 2012
