Mary Anna Evans has degrees in physics and engineering, but her heart is in the past.  Her series character, Faye Longchamp, lives the exciting life of an archaeologist, and Mary Anna envies her a little.  The first Faye Longchamp novel, Artifacts , won the Benjamin Franklin award for the best mystery novel published by a small press in 2003.  It also won the Florida Historical Society's Patrick D. Smith Florida Literature Award, and it was recognized by the Voice of Young America (VOYA) as an "Adult Mystery with Young Adult Appeal."  Mary Anna is very proud of being recognized for writing a good page-turner for people of all ages while, at the same time, getting the historical facts right. 

For the incurably curious, Mary Anna's first published work, her master's thesis, was entitled A Modeling Study of the NH 3 -NO-O 2 Reaction Under the Operating Conditions of a Fluidized Bed Combustor.  Like her mysteries, it was also a factual page-turner but, no, it's not available online.  She turned to from engineering to fiction after the birth of her third child prompted a shift in focus from managing hazardous wastes to preparing balanced meals.  Unfortunately, she has yet to acquire the knack of laundry management.  Writing lets her indulge her passion for history and literature and science and everything else that goes into a good book.  Simply put, crafting a novel is fun.  Mary Anna lives in Gainesville, Florida with her husband, three children, and a cat.
