In second grade, Annie Hogsett had to count the number of eggs in pictures of birds' nests and began to realize she should run away from anything that involved math. Luckily, Annie was a very good reader.
Given time and nurturing, a very good reader can begin to at least recognize good writing. At first Annie thought writing books of her own would be boring because she believed she'd begin to write already knowing everything that would happen in the story and how her mysteries would would be solved. Fortunately, it never works out that way for her. Annie's characters always have ideas of their own!
Annie enjoyed a career in advertising and then spent more than ten years completing three novels before she wrote Too Lucky To Live, Book #1 of The Somebody's Bound to Wind Up Dead Mysteries. Her debut novel was published by Poisoned Pen Press on May 2, 2017. She says that as far as she's concerned, the secret to being a successful writer is to love the process of writing.
According to Annie Hogsett,"If you find joy in what you're doing, you're a success, and publication is icing on the cake." She also reports that realizing her dream of becoming a published author and finding readers of her own, has been a mountain of delicious icing.
