About Ann

After teaching high school English for 15 years at Hannahville Indian School/Nah Tah Wahsh School located on a Potawatomi reservation in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, I was inspired to write my first Middle Grade novel, Cady and the Bear Necklace (HenschelHAUS Books,  Milwaukee, WI).

 

I’ve received scholarships to study writing at the Split Rock Arts Institute/Univ. of MN and the Highlights Foundations sessions in Honesdale, PA as well as writers’ residencies at Wild Acres Retreat Center, NC. I started out as a newspaper reporter/photographer and returned to journalism after retiring from teaching. I love delving into “the story behind the story” whether it be of persons, places or things.

I continue to freelance for several publications while writing additional Middle Grade novels about my favorite character, 13-year-old Cady, and the challenges she faces—and overcomes—while solving mysteries.

 

I’m thrilled that Cady is a Midwest Independent Book Award winner and a Next Generation Indie Book Award finalist. I’ve also received a 2020 SCBWI/MI chapter Member for Members Scholarship.
