Libby Fischer Hellmann left a career in broadcast news in Washington, DC and moved to Chicago 35 years ago, where she, naturally, began to write gritty crime fiction. Eleven novels and twenty short stories later, she claims they’ll take her out of the Windy City feet first. She has been nominated for many awards in the mystery writing community and has even won a few. Her novels include the 4 volume Ellie Foreman series, which she describes as a cross between “Desperate Housewives” and “24,” the hard-boiled 4-volume Georgia Davis PI series, and several stand-alone novels that Libby calls her “revolution trilogy:” SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE, A BITTER VEIL, and HAVANA LOST. Her short stories have been published in a dozen anthologies, the Saturday Evening Post, and Ed Gorman’s “25 Criminally Good Short Stories” collection. More at http://libbyhellmann.com.
