I am Ann Tracy Marr. There isn't much to tell: Fifty-ish, married, on the eastside of Detroit where the lake runs into the river. As I get older, I get funnier. Guess I'm not afraid of what people say.

Dull, right? I'm just the person next door. Nothing exciting. Except the alternate reality I write about isn’t dull. England's Regency period (think Pride and Prejudice) has gotten mixed up with a bit of magic left over from King Arthur's Camelot. Not heavy on the fantasy, mind. Magic isn't something everyone does, and when they do it, it's secret.

As one reviewer said, it works surprisingly well.

An email came from the Polish Origins group with the subject line “Why didn’t they talk about it.” Like many others, my Polish immigrant grandfather didn’t talk about the old country. Why didn’t Grandpa tell me stories about Poland?

Andrew never talked about his past. When I was a teen, I dragged out enough to know that his father had three wives and twenty children. Andrew was the youngest. I b... Read more of this blog post »

Thwarting Magic (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:33PM
Description: Twist legend into truth. King Arthur, the round table, and Merlin’s magic are not myth, but history. In the Camelot inspired Regency fantasy, Thwarting Magic, a rogue wizard threatens the stability of the world. It is magician Adrian Hughes's quest to find and stop the wizard before magic holes destroy the atmosphere. It is his dream to win Margaret Ridgemont. But in 1814, the fathers decide. Margaret and James Treadway will marry. Period, end of discussion. It promises to be a hell of an arranged marriage. With magic holes forming in the most unexpected places, Adrian’s quest throws him into the deepest pit of all, the void of a loveless marriage.

Dianne Ascroft Hi Ann,

Thanks for the friend request. I see you are just outside Detroit - I went to university in Windsor, Canada so we were almost neighbours at one time (we won't mention how long ago that was!). I'm a fan of fantasy and magic elements in stories so your books sound interesting.
