Frances Patterson Harper Ann


I am a daughter, a wife, a mother, a sister, an aunt, and now an author! All of which I consider honors.
I love, love, love "Family" and consider being a wife and a mother my most dedicated and treasured
accomplishments. I'm an insatiable, devoted music lover-singing is one of my first loves and passions.
One of my favorite places to be is on the beach with sand between my toes , with the ocean breeze! It
makes me grateful that God is the creator of all nature and I feel closer to Him there, I love flowers and
chocolates! Last and certainly not least, I'm a people person and I have a hug for the world!

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a town in Georgia called La Grange. I am the youngest of six children and our parents were quite strict.
Writing was my source of pleasurable escape and sweet expression. The experiences of a small southern community
shaped my world for many years. My writing style is that of simplicity through complex observations and experiences.
Writing is one of my close friends and confidants.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing in high school. I wrote our senior play that we performed.
I developed a love of poetry early on and prior to writing the play, I wrote songs and poetry.
Writing is one of my treasured therapies and instruments of expression. Music and singing is my first love
and passion. I played piano in churches from age 11 until I went off to college. I sing every chance I get.
