About Ann Somerville

Ann Somerville grew up in one of Australia’s prettiest small cities. In 1989, she left Australia with a BA and a burning ambition to see more of the world and its people, and to discover this ‘culture’ thing people kept telling her about. In 2006, she returned home to Southeast Queensland with two more degrees, an English husband, and a staggering case of homesickness, vowing never to leave Australia again.

Ann writes mostly science fiction and fantasy, and most stories feature LGBT characters.

Review by: C S McClellan on July 23, 2010 :
I'm a big fan of Ann Somerville's books, and while I enjoyed Going Down, I didn't think it was as strong as most of what she's written. The problem may be that's it's a novella rather than a full-length novel, and it wasn't possible to develop the characters in the way she usually does. Still, not a bad read.

This is a very sweet story. I enjoyed it very much. It's a slow story, in a good way. Derzo is an intriguing character.
