TELEPHONE ROAD

Stalked, assaulted, and left to die, Marlena thinks her life is over. Then she meets Destiny and justice takes on a new meaning. It's called revenge.

https://www.authorannswann.com

A former emergency services dispatcher, rock-n-roll radio station secretary, hospital information operator, and grade school teacher, Ann Swann has been many things. Through it all were the words. She's been a writer since her teenage years and began winning fiction awards in college. As a child she grew up much like Stevie-girl in small town Texas. One difference?

We were in New Mexico and there was a beautiful little stream with such a rocky bed that the water just seemed to stutter along in fits and starts. I used it for the basis of my book and also mention it in other stories.(less)

Then I moved on to Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Mary Higgins Clark. Oh, and Jeffrey Deaver. His Lincoln Rhyme novels are packed with suspense.

Thanks for asking. I still have so much to learn about this game of novel writing!(less)

Work in Progress

Hello Friends,

I hope your summer is starting well ... I am currently working on a new book of women's fiction and a new novel of suspense.

There are two Christmas novels coming out soon - well, one is a novella, the other a novel - and hopefully Takers and Seekers will be released by then as well. We shall see...

Take care and read more books!
