Draw closes June 6, 2020.Six things you’ll learn from this Joys of Binge Reading episode:How Anne came to take on her father's mantleWhy writing non fiction led to fictionThe tragic strength of the Navajo peopleHow a fine dress became a holy relicPlaces to go in Navajo countryWhat she wishes she'd asked her Dad Tony HillermanWhere to find Anne Hillerman: Website: https://annehillerman.com/Facebook: @authotannehillermanWhat follows is a "near as" transcript of our conversation, not word for word but pretty close to it, with links to important mentions.Jenny Wheeler: But now here's Anne. Hello there Anne and welcome to the show. It's great to have you with us.Anne Hillerman: Hello Jenny. Thank you so much for asking me.Introducing author Anne HillermanAnne Hillerman - Navajo country mysteries carried on from her Dad Tony HillermanJenny Wheeler: We're both in a global pandemic at the opposite sides of the world and I wonder how you are managing with social distancing. Has it made much of an impact on your life?Anne Hillerman: Yes and no.  I think anyone who's a writer tends to have some pretty strong introverted genes and so in some ways I have been glad to have an excuse to say, no, I can't go to lunch, no, I can't talk to your Kiwanis group, to your Rotary group because of social distancing, and to have more quiet time to focus on my writing.But the downside of that is I write about real places, and part of my process always has been going to the places that are in the book and then trying to talk to people who live there to get a real sense of what the community is like.  Getting through a pandemic wholeWith the book I'm working on now, I had two big interviews set up right before New Mexico, the state where I live, went on not exactly lockdown, but pretty darn close to it.  One of the interviews was at a school and of course they were all closed and the other was at a scientific facility and the person I was talking to did the public tours so those were all closed.  That's been a downside of it.  But I think once things open up again, I'll be able to put those pieces together.I miss my friends and I miss being able to go out to dinner but all in all, I think we just have to all do what we can, so we'll be done with this.  I guess that's a long answer to your short question.Summertime is coming soon...Jenny Wheeler:  That's absolutely right.  If we all do our bit, then hopefully.  I heard somebody on the TV this morning say, well, it's going to be like this for the next two years or until we get a vaccine and I guess none of us really wants to think of it that way, but it might be a little bit of a long journey.Anne Hillerman: I had some really sweet invitations to do talks this Spring and of course they were all canceled and so I missed that.  But it’s worth it.  I have so many friends who are in the high risk group and I wouldn't have ever wanted to take a chance on anything happening to them, so I think we all have to do our part to get through this. Jenny Wheeler:  Yes.  You've got a unique story as a novelist because you've continued your father, Tony Hillerman's,

She received a journalism degree from the University of New Mexico and worked as a newspaper reporter, editor and columnist before becoming a full-time author. She is honored to continue the mystery series Tony Hillerman created.

Released by HarperCollins, the book received the Spur Award from Western Writers of America for the Best First Novel of 2013. The fifth, The Tale Teller, returns Joe Leaphorn to his role of protagonist and crime solver in a case that has ties to the Navajo’s Long Walk. While Leaphorn is hard at work, Bernie and Chee travel to the Canyon de Chelly/Chinle area to solve an unexplained murder and the theft of an old man’s prized possession. Anne also is the author of the award-winning Tony Hillerman’s Landscape: On the Road with Chee and Leaphorn, created with husband/photographer Don Strel, and honored as the best photo book of the year by the Mountains and Plains Booksellers.

But Anne Hillerman brought her own approach to the series and, with the release of The Tale Teller this spring, has added five new entries to the series set in and around the Navajo Nation. On the podcast, Anne, who will be a keynote speaker at the Colorado Gold conference in September, talks about her decision to add female protagonist Bernadette Manuelito to the Chee-Leaphorn mix and about her approach to research and storytelling. Anne Hillerman grew up in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, the eldest of the family’s six children. She received a journalism degree from the University of New Mexico and worked as a newspaper reporter, editor and columnist before becoming a full-time author. Anne’s debut novel, Spider Woman’s Daughter won the Spur Award from Western Writers of America for the Best First Novel of 2013. Her next three titles - Rock with Wings, Song of the Lion, and Cave of Bones - were all New York Times best sellers.
