Local Author's Latest Mystery Series Salutes Unsung WWI Heroines

Fort Wayne mystery author, Anna Huber added the early 20th century to her usual Regency and early Victorian based British adventures last year, with a new series set in the shadow of The Great War.

Book two in Huber's Verity Kent Series, the author's 3rd mystery series.

The important constant in the author's work, besides the lushly portrayed United Kingdom settings and well crafted story lines, is her strong, and not necessarily typical, female protagonists.

As the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day draws near, WBOI's Julia Meek invited Huber into the studio to talk about her passion for this era, and how her latest Verity Kent novel honors those forgotten female spies of World War One.
