About the Speaker

Anne Hillerman is delighted to continue the mystery series her father, the best-selling author Tony Hillerman, created beginning in 1970. Hillerman’s debut novel, Spider Woman’s Daughter, follows the further adventures of the characters Tony Hillerman made famous: Jim Chee, Joe Leaphorn and Bernadette Manuelito. Released by HarperCollins, the book received the Spur Award from Western Writers of America for the Best First Novel. Hillerman’s second mystery in the series, Rock with Wings, was released in May 2015 and quickly became a New York Times best-seller. The third novel in the series, Song of the Lion, was released April, 2017.
 
Hillerman is also the author of Tony Hillerman’s Landscape: On the Road with Chee and Leaphorn with husband/photographer Don Strel. In collaboration with St. Martin’s Press she established The Tony Hillerman Prize for best first mystery novel set in the Southwest. Hillerman belongs to many writers’ organizations and serves on the board of Western Writers of America. In 2015, she was invited by the University of New Mexico to present the annual Rudolfo and Patricia Anaya Lecture on the Literature of the Southwest. She is a frequent presenter at the Tucson Festival of the Book and represented New Mexico at the National Book Festival hosted by the Library of Congress.
