About Ann Bridges


As a long-time resident of Northern California's famed Silicon Valley, Ann Bridges is enthralled by its colorful past, energetic present and promising future. After graduating from Stanford University, she spent most of her career as the only business woman in a roomful of men, gaining their trust and eventually insight into secret corporate affairs abounding as technology boomed all around her. Business plans and politics, gadgets and media, clandestine deals and overt power grabs--she's seen it all.

Poking around local ruins and tiny museums, she uncovered unique stories of its diverse residents overlooked in the current-day hype of new technology releases. So she gave up her career and sat down to write about her little corner of the world in all its flavors and quirks with stories that matter now. Marrying personal experience, a love of history, and her assessment of its potential, she shares slices of the real Silicon Valley with her readers--warts, strengths, complexities and its unshakable allure.

When she isn't hitting the keyboard she enjoys hiking the nearby hills, herb and vegetable gardening, and hashing out the philosophies of life and relationships with her closest friends.

Review by: karenbwilliams on June 18, 2014 :
Great story that kept my attention (couldn't put it down) and also taught me a lot about the 1870's in northern CA. Fascinating characters, and I loved where the story led. Very interesting plot. Would also make for a great movie. I kept thinking of my days watching Bonanza as a child while I read the book. Looking forward to the next book!
