Book 4 - STEVIE-GIRL AND THE PHANTOM OF FOREVER is here! Available everywhere in digital. Print is coming soon.

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? Ann never got up the nerve to enter the haunted house alone. She waited until she married her husband, Dude, then they went in together. Ann would love to hear your thoughts on her stories. Feel free to message her at any of her social media sites.

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)

I grew up reading Edgar Allan Poe and Alfred Hitchcock. I loved their collections of short stories. 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)

The Outsider by Stephen King
"Agh, this one was hard. 65% of this book is some of King’s best, most original, and most assured writing in years. It’s when the novel switches track and truly delves into the nature of the antagonist that it begins to get a little cheesy and, ove..." Read more of this review »
Ann Swann liked a quote
283369
“Horror itself is a bit of a bullied genre, the antagonist being literary snobbery and public misconception. And I think good horror tackles our darkest fears, whatever they may be. It takes us into the minds of the victims, explores the threats, disseminates fear, studies how it changes us. It pulls back the curtain on the ugly underbelly of society, tears away the masks the monsters wear out in the world, shows us the potential truth of the human condition. Horror is truth, unflinching and honest. Not everybody wants to see that, but good horror ensures that it's there to be seen.”
