Ann Frommer’s first novel has been a lifelong dream. After reading Victor Merkel’s first book, “Misery Mountain”, Ann & Victor, former Tamaqua, PA, school mates, reconnected and a long distance friendship began.
While Ann lived in Budapest, Vic invited her to co-author his next book, “TailGunner: War Defines Us”. This city in Hungary seemed an ideal setting for research and creation of the “Ilona” character.
Ann’s father, Edgar Arner, a former private pilot whose barnstorming antics amused her also gave some colorful background to the first chapter of "Tailgunner".
Ms. Frommer, an RN, with a successful healthcare management career, wrote and published multiple medical articles. She served as editor of a healthcare quality newsmagazine, “The Alert”, which won national recognition.
Ann studied liberal arts at Columbia and art at NYU. She also completed her bachelor's and master’s degrees at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, NJ.
Ann belongs to several local art organizations and serves as an officer at the Art League of the Chathams. She also holds membership in the NJ Romantic Writers Association and Romantic Writers of America.
When she is not writing, she either travels with Robert or exhibits her photography of European Scenes in various NJ galleries. She and Robert reside in Chatham, NJ.
