Ann was born and raised in Michigan on the Northeast side of, what was then a suburb of Detroit, where she attended John Marshall Elementary School, Nolan Middle School, and Pershing High School. She did not graduate from Pershing, but obtained her GED and went on to Graduate from Davenport University with her Associate, and Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration (with a concentration in Management). Ann also attended another college, which she will not mention here, so as not to mislead people into thinking that she is actually endorsing said institution (draw your own conclusions).
Once Ann finished school and readied herself for a new job with a substantial pay increase, after ten long years of working full-time and attending school part-time, things were humming along like a fine-tuned watch.
In the interim, Ann fulfilled her artistic passions singing and acting with a drama team in and around the metro area.
She was finally warming up to the idea of marriage and children, because now she felt confident that she could raise her family without struggling, and position them for opportunities that would not otherwise be available to them.
However, before she could step into, and begin to enjoy that which she had worked so hard to obtain, the economy imploded and set her back about a decade. Now there she sat in a remote corner of her father's basement, scrambling to think of creative ways to get a steady stream of income flowing just to survive.
Thus began Ann's transition from a casual doodler to a serious writer. Having settled on something where she could cut out the middlemen, do it in the comfort of her own home, and publish it herself, she set out to write her first novel.
There you have it folks. The catalyst to Ann's writing career, and she hopes to entertain you with her prose for years to come. She certainly has a rich enough past from which to draw.

It swept me away... this beautiful, short love story, so well written that even the tragic ending was magical.
