Northwoods author writes mysteries with Wisconsin setting

In her 40s and living back in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, the Northwoods city she swore she’d never return to, Victoria Houston thought she would try her hand at fiction writing. She  wrote her first novel 4 or 5 times before it was finally ready to publish. Since then, the popular “Loon Lake” crime series has taken off—book number 9 “Dead Hot Shot” came out in July 2008. Houston writes about what she knows:  life in a small northern Wisconsin town and fly-fishing. Her protagonists, police chief Lewellyn Ferris and retired dentist Paul Osborne, are expert flyfishers who also happen to solve some very strange murders.
Ms. Houston will be at the Kewaskum Public Library to talk about fly fishing, writing and the life of a crime novelist. This special chance to talk to a mainstream published author will be open to the public on Saturday, March 7th at 10am. Please call the library if you are interested in attending. Ms. Houston’s books will be for sale during the event courtesy of Fireside Books of West Bend.
