A Prince Among Men

RIP Prince…

Greetings, all —

As most of you (probably all) know, the world lost another creative genius yesterday. There was — and continues to be — an outpouring of grief and tributes on social media and of course callous and occasionally troll-ish responses. Such is the world in which we live these days.

I bring the death of Prince Rogers Nelson up here because a comment by fellow author Jill Malone on Facebook captured, I think, what so many of us feel when an icon like this dies.

About Anne Hagan

I'm an East Central Ohio based government employee by day and a fiction author by night. I specialize in mystery fiction featuring lesbian sleuths and cozy fiction featuring women sleuths. I also dabble in romance especially romantic lesfic. I live with my wife and our dogs in a tiny town that’s even smaller than the Morelville of my first fiction series and we wouldn't have it any other way. My wife grew up here and she has always called this little village home. Though it’s an ultra-conservative rural community, we're surrounded here by family, longtime friends and many other wonderful people with open hearts and minds. My wife and I are the co-owners of a commercial haunted house: Hagan's House of Horrors. Much as my dream has always been to write fiction, hers has been to create it through the medium of horror. We went full commercial in 2015. Watch us as we grow!
