Hollister Ann Grant


Writer, collie lover, active in animal rescue. I live in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania with my beloved collie and four cats and write novels, short stories, and nonfiction.

Haunted Ground: Ghost Photos from the Gettysburg Battlefield. My late husband Jack was a military history buff and nature photographer who took thousands of photos of the Gettysburg battlefield, including some uncanny ones. I wanted to share those photos and our personal stories with other people, so I wrote Haunted Ground. I changed from a lifelong skeptic about ghosts into a reluctant believer after years of hiking across the battlefield.

Lost Cargo is a science fiction and fantasy novel about a galactic animal control ship that crashes in Washington, D.C.'s Rock Creek Park. I grew up in D.C. and had a great time writing about the city. I'm a lifelong fan of classic science fiction movies (Close Encounters is my favorite film), so I loved working on this novel.

Smashwords book reviews by Hollister Ann Grant

  • Infinite Sacrifice (Infinite Series, Book 1) on Nov. 11, 2011

    The cover of this book fascinates me. It shows the infinity symbol against clouds and has to be one of the most beautiful book covers I’ve ever seen. I began reading Infinite Sacrifice last night and was so caught up in the stories that I couldn’t put it down. This is historical fantasy, and the author has really done her homework. I felt I was actually standing on the dusty roads of past civilizations, staring into the faces of real people. My favorite story is the entangled one with the twin brothers, Theodon and Arcen, and their sister Kali, but I don’t want to give away any spoilers (except to say I didn’t see the plot twists coming at all). Well done. A good book to curl up with on a cold winter day.
