A Discussion With Anna Flowers

Anna Flowers

(Anna Flowers – seated to the left. I’m standing in the middle.)


Last Thursday, February 11th, our writing group, The Forum Five, had the privilege of being visited by a guest speaker, true crime writer, Anna Flowers. Anna is the bestselling author or Blind Fury, the story of serial killer Gerald Stano, and Bound to Die, the case of Bobby Joe Long, a Tampa Bay murderer.  These books were selected as Doubleday True Crime and Mystery Guild Club selections. She has also authored Murder at Wayside Antiques, Vengeance at Meeting Street, and Wanton woman.

Mrs. Flowers has been a Director of Mystery writers of America, Florida Chapter, and is a member of Sisters in Crime, National League of American Penwomen, and the Space Coast Writers Guild.

During a two hour informal meeting, Anna answered questions from our members. She explained her extensive research preparation, how her tenacity has helped her get information from hesitant witnesses, how she became interested in true crime writing, etc.

Her wit, insight, and behind the scenes anecdotes captured our attention and provided an experience that we won’t soon forget.

About Hurricane River Publishing

I write mystery novels. The Butterfly Conspiracy and The Peacock Prophecy, feature Stepehn Moorehouse, his Uncle Phillip Kahle, and Stephen's romantic interest, Jeanette St. Jacques. The Maze At Four Chimneys features John Barrington and his family. The Black Orchid Mystery features a detective named Archie Archibald. This book takes place in Vero Beach, Florida but has ties to John Barrington from The Maze book. My latest book, Menagerie of Broken Dreams, brings back Stephen Moorhouse and his uncle Philip, as they travel to central Florida to make a movie. Things don't go as planned when they meet Doctor Merryweather and his run down roadside attraction the Menagerie.
