Ann is the author of contemporary novels that explore the resilience of the human spirit along with a cozy mystery series. In a former life, she spent thirty years as a clinical laboratory scientist, a career that ended abruptly when the toxicology laboratory she was directing closed, forcing her to face a question she wasn’t yet expecting to face: What was she going to do with the rest of her life?
After an unexpected urge to write a story, she quickly discovered the delights of creating fictional worlds, although it meant readjusting the habits of a lifetime. After all, throughout her scientific career, her left (logical) brain had been in control. This time around, she had moved into right (creative) brain territory.
Her first novel, Dreams for Stones, is an Indie Next Generation Book Award Finalist.
