Learning to Plot from the Queen of Crime

Anna Castle, author of historical novels Murder by Misrule and Death by Disputation, will talk about Agatha Christie’s “sneaky plot tricks” at our Sisters in Crime March 8 meeting. Ms. Castle is the chapter’s secretary/historian.

Anna Castle writes two series of novels: the Francis Bacon mysteries and the Lost Hat, Texas mysteries. She has earned a series of degrees: BA in the Classics, MS in Computer Science, and a PhD in Linguistics and has had a corresponding series of careers including waitressing, software engineering, grammar-writing, assistant professor, and archivist. Writing fiction combines her lifelong love of stories and learning. She physically resides in Austin, Texas, and mentally counts herself a queen of infinite space.
