Profile: Nancy Barr, Sleuthing in a Small Town

Escanaba, a small city in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, is featured in the debut novel by Daily Mining Gazette (DMG) columnist and editor Nancy Barr, a resident of the Hancock area who called Delta County home for more than 20 years. Page One: Hit and Run is the first in a new mystery series featuring Robin Hamilton published by Arbutus Press.

Jane Nordberg, staff writer at the DMG, recently profiled her co-worker at the paper. Nordberg writes that following Barr’s experiences as a police beat reporter at Escanaba’s Daily Press, Page One: Hit and Run makes the most of what the author knows best — the newsroom and small town politics.Page One: Hit and Run by Nancy Barr

“Escanaba is a unique town in that it’s not really a tourist destination,” Barr said. “It hasn’t preserved a lot of its history in the way that Houghton or Hancock has, but some of the buildings and parks are beautiful, and the people are worth writing about.”

Nordberg adds that a first draft of Barr’s follow-up novel, tentatively titled Page One: Vanished, is already completed, where Hamilton will encounter more trouble in several Upper Peninsula counties.
