About Mary Anna

In addition to writing award-winning crime fiction, Mary Anna teaches fiction and nonfiction writing at the University of Oklahoma. Her current release, Wrecked is set on and around Faye’s Gulf of Mexico island home, and underneath the Gulf of Mexico as well. Faye’s growing list of adventures includes Artifacts, Relics, Effigies, Findings, Floodgates, Strangers, Plunder, Rituals, Isolation, Burials, Undercurrents, Catacombs, and Wrecked.

Mary Anna is at work on The Physicists’ War, the first book in a series set in New Orleans featuring World War II-era factory worker Justine Byrne. (No, she’s not shelving the Faye books forever. She’s just giving Faye the chance to take a little rest from stumbling over dead bodies.) Mary Anna describes the new series as “Rosie the Riveter meets Bletchley Park.” She also describes it as an excellent way to use that bachelor’s degree in engineering physics hanging on her office wall. The Physicists’ War will be released mid-2021.
