I've been writing most of my life...and was published for the first time in 1995, in Dog Fancy Magazine. Since then, my articles have been featured in several magazines such as Western Horseman, True Love, Country Women, Reminisce, Women's World and more. A long-time member of Red Mountain Writer's Group, I owe my cohorts there a world of thanks for their suggestions and ideas.
Born and raised in northern Illinois in the DeKalb area, I've lived in Mesa, Arizona for more than two decades.
I an single and have two kids, Shawna and Chance. I also have an ancient Siberian Husky named Cleo, as well as Rocky, my sweet-tempered Boxer. I am also owned by a flame point Siamese named Frank, who is most assuredly the loudest cat in the nation.
In my spare time, I like to buy and sell antiques and collectibles, vintage jewelry in particular. When I am not writing or reading, I enjoy laboring over cross stitch designs that are so complicated they make me cuss out loud. I love the blues and vintage rock from the 70s and 80s. A Sunday afternoon spent doing the New York Times crossword puzzle (in ink, of course!)is an afternoon well-spent. A Sunday night spent watching Dexter on Showtime makes the day perfect.
Determined to enjoy life, using this ridiculous (some might say warped) sense of humor I was given helps make it a fun ride. . .

Seven Hills Road touched home with me since the setting is the area I grew up, except for the fictious town of course. I really enjoyed the story and the Ali was able to weave the two stories together. ANOTHER GREAT READ!

Sometimes I just can't decide between historical fiction, paranormal adventure, or a good romance so I was thrilled to find all three in one in Seven Hills Road. When Starla and her husband bought the one hundred year old, three story Victorian house in Illinois, they knew it would come with an enormous price tag for renovation and remodeling. What they didn't know was that it came with a resident ghost, Stephania Atherton. It was delightful to read about the triumphs and tragedies shared by the two women in spite of the fact that they were separated by over 100 years. When their stories come together in a moonlit cornfield, the reader is rewarded with a glimpse into the kind of love that transcends the limits of time. Ziegler spins a terrific read.

I love time travel stories and Ziegler did a great job of pulling me in and making me turn one more page--and then one more! Her characters are believable and she did a good job of fitting them to the two different time periods. Ali Ziegler is definitely on my list of must read writers!
