Anne Hillerman’s debut novel, Spider Woman’s Daughter, is a mystery set in the Southwest, including the Navajo Nation and Santa Fe. The book follows the further adventures of the characters Tony Hillerman made famous: Jim Chee, Joe Leaphorn and Bernadette Manuelito. The novel was released by HarperCollins on October 1, 2013. Anne also is the author of the award-winning Gardens of Santa Fe, Tony Hillerman’s Landscape: On the Road with Chee and Leaphorn and seven other books.
Like her father, Anne began her career in journalism, working as a reporter for United Press International, as a writer and editor for the New Mexican, and as a columnist and editorial page editor for the Albuquerque Journal’s Santa Fe edition. Today, she keeps her hand in journalism with weekly restaurant reviews for the Albuquerque Journal. Her writing and reporting were recognized with state and national awards, including the New Mexico Book Award, the Mountains and Plains book award and honors from the National Federation of Press Women and the New Mexico Press Association.
Anne published her first book, Children’s Guide to Santa Fe in 1983. More nonfiction books followed, including two editions of the Insiders’ Guide to Santa Fe. Santa Fe Flavors, based on her work as a restaurant reviewer, was released by Gibbs Smith Press in 2009 followed by Gardens of Santa Fe in 2010. Santa Fe Flavors won the New Mexico Book Award for Best Cookbook of 2009 and Gardens was honored as the best garden book in 2011.
