Anna Drake


Anna Drake writes mysteries with a touch of romance and a bit of suspense. She says her fascination with crime and its consequences began when she discovered a stash of Nancy Drew books in her parents' attic. Her devotion to the genre remained even as her tastes expanded. And to this day, when Anna isn't writing, she's most at home with her nose buried in a book. When not writing or reading, she enjoys quilting, gardening, and spending time with family and friends.

  • Olympus Rises (Book One of the Code of War) on April 10, 2014

    This book lies outside my usual mystery genre, but the cover drew me in. I'm glad it did. I enjoyed the read.
  • The Last Violin on March 31, 2017

    Two men missing. A woman who cares about their fate.. The Last Violin, by J. M. Davis, is a touching short story perfect for a quick lunchtime read. I enjoyed reading it very much.
  • Mud Pie on April 07, 2017

    This book is set in England, near Manchester, and features a young cook, Lannie Herron, being chased by an evil bunch of young thugs. They want to kill her for exposing their drug dealing. She is fleeing in hopes of escaping their retribution. (Mud Pie, by the way, is a dessert, although I can’t really describe it since I’ve never had it. But needless to say, Lannie makes a great one.) So there she is working in some small pub, praying to escape detection and death. Who said survival was easy? The e-book is an engaging read full of rugby players, flirtations, and narrow escapes. I truly enjoyed it, and since it ended with her future not fully spelled out, I suggest Dole use this as the first book in a series of Lannie adventures. I’d certainly read them for whatever that’s worth.
  • Widowmere on April 07, 2017

    Widowmere features an artist as its protagonist, As such she sees things in colors and shapes as any good artist will do. The previous reviewer spoke out against the excessive descriptions in this book, which I believe fits the nature of this main character, and while they bothered the first reviewer, they bothered me not a whit. In fact I see Emma Lee Dole’s use of language in this novel as remarkable and thoroughly enjoyable. It’s an astounding, intricate novel full of highly satisfying twists, turns, and deceptions.
