Critics say:

"It's hard to believe this is the author's debut novel. She gets everything right; intriguing plot, memorable characters, atmospheric setting. I do hope there will be more Hannah Fox mysteries. But if that is not to be, at least let there be more mysteries by Anita Page, please."
 –Cherie Jung, Over My Dead Body

"The cast of fully realized characters in Damned if You Don’t runs the gamut of good and bad, just like you’d meet anywhere. Determining which is which is what puzzles Hannah. Politics in the small town, complete with nepotism and inter-relations rings true. The mystery is a good one, well plotted and paced, with surprising twists. Page is a writer to watch." –Carol Crigger, Buried Under Books

"Author Anita Page's debut novel is a winner, start to finish. Page's characters come alive with the everyday concerns, fears, and challenges of real people, the sort of challenges that most of us deal with on a regular basis. The situations and scenes that Page draws are believable and down-to-earth, sometimes gut-wrenchingly familiar.” –Don Metzler, Gumshoe Review

Food, Glorious Food

In a recent Op Ed piece in The New York Times, food writer Mark Bittman, whose book How to Cook Everything is our family food bible, talks about comfort food and how it relates to memories of family and childhood.Reading Bittman's piece, I began thinking about the role that food, with its potential for sensuality, can play in fiction. Unlike sex scenes, which can be silly or boring if you go too far, no restraint is required when writing about food—drown the pancakes in syrup, stick your finger in the whipped cream and lick it off, slurp the Turkish red lentil soup with rosemary. Hungry yet?
