M. Louisa Locke, a retired professor of U.S. and Women's History, has embarked on a second career as an historical fiction writer. Her Victorian San Francisco Mystery series, Maids of Misfortune, Uneasy Spirits, and Bloody Lessons, feature Annie Fuller, a boardinghouse owner and clairvoyant, and Nate Dawson, a San Francisco lawyer, who together investigate murders and other crimes.
Her short stories give secondary characters from this series a chance to get involved in their own minor mysteries. Dr. Locke is an active member in the Alliance of Independent Authors, and a Director of the Historical Fiction Authors Cooperative. Dr. Locke is currently working on Deadly Proof, the next full-length installment of her Annie Fuller/Nate Dawson series.
