Anna-Marie Abell


Anna-Marie Abell grew up in a trailer park. Well, several actually. Her trailer was on wheels so she got to experience the Pacific Northwest’s vast array of mobile home parks as her parents moved her from one to the other. Somewhere along the way, she got totally into UFOs. Probably because she was hoping extraterrestrials would come and abduct her. But they never did. Luckily for her she was smart, because her only hope of escaping trailer life was college and a full scholarship. Moving to sunny California on her almost full ride to Chapman University, she was well on her way to her new life. Two bachelor degrees later (Film and Television Production and Media Performance), and several honors and awards for her accomplishments, she managed to start working in an almost completely unrelated industry from her majors: infomercials.

It was in college that she got bit by the “ancient alien” bug after listening to Zecharia Sitchin on Coast to Coast AM. In her pursuit to uncover the truth, she has spent the last twenty years researching the ancient Sumerian culture—in particular their “gods” called the Anunnaki—and their connection to the creation of the human race. What she found changed her life, her beliefs, and her understanding of the universe and everything beyond. Her humorous science fiction trilogy, The Anunnaki Chronicles, is a culmination of all her research, her borderline obsession for all things paranormal, and approximately 2,300 bottles of wine.

Smashwords Interview

What would you like readers to take away from your story?
Curiosity about our ancient past and an open mind about the possibility of other life in the universe. There is way more to the story of the human race than we have been led to believe. It was Reagan that said: “Perhaps we need some outside universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.” I think if we stop seeing the differences in each other, and realize we are all one in the same, this world would change for the better. Finding out the human race is just a blip on the cosmic life radar might bring the minuscule variations of our species into perspective.
What inspired you to write this book?
I have been studying the ancient astronaut theory and the Sumerian culture for twenty years. I really wanted to write a fiction book and present my findings in a fun and unique way. I didn’t have a story idea, so I kept putting it off. Then one day my friend messaged me all excited because she saw a “super hot tall guy” reading a UFO book at Barnes & Noble. My first thought was, “What if he was an alien.” And that’s how the story was born.
