Lady Darby Mysteries
Anna Lee Huber was born and raised in a small town in Ohio. From a
young age, her imagination was boundless. She spent her summers with her four
brothers and one sister playing Star Wars, wearing snow boots and her mother's
old nightgowns while swinging plastic bats as light-sabers, and The A-Team
hanging off the riding lawn mower (what else were they supposed to use for the
van?). In the fourth grade, she penned her first story and asked her teacher to
read it to the class. Sure, it was titled Prom Duty, and a ten-year-old doesn't
really know much about high school dances, but she chalked it up as her first
success. She went on to write several more stories, including a series featuring
her own gang of mystery-solving teens, keeping her pen moving despite teenage
hormones and a cross-country move to South Carolina.
