Anna K. Sargent writes historical fiction set in Texas's colorful past, and yet her books are really about identity--who we are and how we became who we are. Anna was well into a successful career as a writer and editor. Then one day, life "threw a craving" on her, as they say in Texas. Her spirit wanted to do what her spirit wanted to do. She wanted to write historical fiction, because she loves history and she loves stories and she loves Texas.
Anna had worked as a journalist for years, starting out as a newspaper reporter. She went on to be the editor of two newspapers and later was a publicist, communications director, and magazine editor. Through it all she had an abiding passion for the place of her heart and its history.
She left her career and found herself again through writing and studying that place. Lucky for her, Texas has an amazing history, full of characters and adventure and extremes of weather and landscape. How people dealt with the place--and how they still deal with it--that's the interesting part.
Her goal is to convey the complexity of Texas' rich cultural past and suggest how it informs the present. She is Texan through and through and part of every person, battle, tall tale, and twist of history that led Texans to where they are.
