Author R. ANN SIRACUSA is involved in many activities, but her two passions are traveling the world and writing fiction. This talented author combines those loves into novels which transport readers to exotic settings and immerse them in romance, intrigue, and foreign cultures…and make them laugh.
After receiving a degree in Architecture from UC Berkeley, she traveled to Italy. There she worked in Rome for an Italian architecture and urban planning firm and married the Sicilian policeman she met at the Fountain of Love on her first day in Rome. When she and her husband returned to the United States, they settled down to career and family. But the travel bug never left her. While working for over thirty years in her chosen career in architecture and urban planning, she made time to travel and began to write fiction that incorporated many of her experiences and observations.
Today, she is retired, lives in San Diego, California, and writes full time. She has three grown children and eight grandchildren, and in addition to writing, she is a quilter, still rides quads with her family in the desert, takes care of grandchildren, participates in charity work with ChildHelp USA, and serves on the vestry of her church.
Her first novel was published in 2008, and since then nine additional works have been published by Sapphire Blue Publishing.
She has been a member of RWA since the mid-1980’s and has served in a variety of offices in several chapters, including Co-President of the San Diego Chapter of RWA (2005-06, 2006-7) and has served on several RWA national committees.
