How much havoc can one gun wreak?

“Riveting… Hansen’s commanding voice weaves a compassionate tale that rings true and clear.”
—Susan Bickford, Edgar Award-nominated author
Vinnie Hansen

Award-winning author Vinnie Hansen lives in Santa Cruz, California, the iconic seaside town serving as the backdrop for most of her Carol Sabala mystery series. Now published by misterio press, you can follow Carol’s latest adventure in book seven, Black Beans & Venom.

Her latest book, One Gun, was a finalist for Killer Nashville’s Silver Falchion Award for Best Contemporary Novel! The 2023 year has been great so far with four published short stories: “Criminal Little Secrets” in the January issue of Mystery Magazine; a reprint of “Room and Board” in Kelp Journal’s gorgeous anthology, The Dark Waves of Winter; “Perfect Partner” in Hook, Line, and Sinker, the seventh anthology from the Guppy Chapter of Sisters in Crime, and “Killer on the Loose” to close out Crimeucopia’s One More Thing To Worry About.

All of Vinnie’s books can be purchased locally at Bookshop Santa Cruz or Kelly’s Books.

“Hansen presents her readers with a tight, fast-paced mystery…. In Sabala, Hansen has created a likable sleuth whose many problems readers may readily identify with….”
