Mary Wasche: “Escape to Alaska” and “Murder in Wasilla”
By Matt Hickman Frontiersman.com ‘Murder in Wasilla’ author at book signing Saturday
WASILLA — Alaska may have more homegrown authors per capita than any state in the union, and in her two published books thus far, Mary Wasche has made the Last Frontier the setting.
She lived in Eagle River for more than 20 years, but moved back to her home state of Minnesota last spring to be closer to family.
She’s back this weekend for a book signing at Barnes & Noble in Anchorage from 1 to 3 p.m.
She’ll have with her “Escape to Alaska”, a combination thriller-love story, and the crime drama “Murder in Wasilla”, even as her next book, a novel set during the Civil War gets ready for print, hopefully by year’s end.

René Edelman Azzara I think I've shared this before, but it's just so awesome I'm sharing it again. On the left is my great-Grampa Ed Edelmann in 1903. Chapter III in Colonel Claude Cane's book, Summer and Fall in Western Alaska is of a hunt that Ed guided a hunting trip for Cane. Ed had a sail boat that he used in Cook Inlet. This hunt takes place on the West side of the Inlet.
