I am the author of ten novels, including the Amazon bestsellers CHOCOLATE FOR BREAKFAST and BITS OF BROKEN GLASS.

My writing has appeared in Magnificat magazine and my very short poem was read by journalist Connie Schultz during National Public Radio's "Tell Me More" poetry challenge.

I live in Rhode Island, never far from the ocean.

My novel VILLA DEL SOL won the 2018 Book Prize in Literary Fiction from the Independent Publishers of New England.

Check out my newest novel - THE SUMMER OF PRINCESS DIANA, available now!

Years ago, well before ancestry.com appeared, I created a family history for my mother. She had a book, a very old book that had been in her mother’s possession (passed down through her father from her father’s mother), and that book contained over 1,800 names of descendants of one person – a Hugh Stone, born around 1638, who emigrated from England around 1658.

Fly Girl by Ann Hood
"LOTS of talk about planes and uniforms. Very few funny stories about passengers or secrets that only flight attendants would now. Ann Hood always fails to disappoint."
Fly Girl by Ann Hood
"The author starts the book with everyone loves my stories and when I say “when I was a flight attendant…”. Well, hurry up in telling some stories. Don’t care about the history of flight attendants, nor jets, nor TWA…tell us fun stories!

“Wishes father thought, but they don't breed evidence.”
John Galsworthy

“Lovers of print are simply confusing the plate for the food.”
Douglas Adams

“Writers are the exorcists of their own demons.”
Mario Vargas-Llosa

“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
