Lucia Kuhl is a pen name created from and in honor of the combined names of my grandmothers.
I write stories that explore "this is going to 'sound crazy, but'...moments," using cozy mysteries as the story form.
I've had a few of those moments in life and they made me feel "different" enough to ask lots of questions and search for answers. Translated it means I have more questions than answers. But, perhaps, the point is in the seeking.
I am an animal lover. Any spelling errors or typos in my books are the work of my cats. Not really! My High School English Teacher knew I wanted to be a writer, and he rode my case. Thankfully word processors with built-in spell-check came along as I was leaving college.
Indiana is my home. I teach Ballroom Dance, and love to see Notre Dame win. Born and raised in the country I battle weeds in my flower garden between writing scenes, and search for lost relatives, current and past. A long line of military soldiers invaded my family tree (or, maybe, I invaded their's) including a few from the American Revolutionary War. There is also an accused German Witch and a Michigan Politician in my background. Moon Lake Witch is loosely based on my ancestor.
Dad and Uncle Bert bought me a pony named Target at the age of three. A love affair with horses and Television Westerns began the day he clopped into my life and stepped on my foot. A few years later a favorite babysitter mesmerized me with countless ghost stories.
By the time I reached Jr. High I had fallen in love with Phyllis A. Whitney's mysterious mysteries and decided I wanted to become a writer like her.
