A native New Yorker and lifelong resident of Brooklyn, Ann Herendeen is a graduate of Princeton University, where she majored in English while maintaining a strong interest in English history. She enjoys reading—and writing—for escape.
Ann writes from the "third perspective," the woman who prefers a bisexual husband and enjoys a polyamorous, m/m/f menage. With Phyllida and the Brotherhood of Philander, Ann put a new twist on a traditional form, creating the ultimate love story she always wanted to read: an m/​m/​f Regency romance. In Pride/​Prejudice, a finalist in the Bisexual Fiction category for the 2011 Lambda Literary Award, she dares to tell the hidden bisexual story within Jane Austen's classic novel.
In the summer of 2011, Ann launche

Ann Herendeen asked a question about A Seal Called Andre:
A Seal Called Andre by Harry Goodridge
Does anyone know the date this particular edition was published? The original publication was by Praeger (Holt Rinehart and Winston), 1974 or 1975. This edition by Down East Books with this cover image and subtitle is a reprint. It contains a "publisher's note" on the the last page telling us that Andre the seal died in 1986 and that author Harry Goodridge died in 1990.

No One Can Pronounce My Name is a perfect example in the ongoing tired discussion on definitions of literary and genre fiction, and is there a difference and whether it matters. In genre fiction, the story (plot) is more important than style. In lite ...more

“You think money can solve any problem, but all it s good for is buying the things it can, and leaving you free to pursue the things it can't.”
Ann Herendeen, Phyllida and the Brotherhood of Philander

“Whenever did love have anything to do with deserving?”
Ann Herendeen, Phyllida and the Brotherhood of Philander
tags: love

“A gentle, quiet young man who might sit languid at her feet and read his verses to her or who might paint or draw her portrait. He would hold her hand and whisper how beautiful she was, how precious to him. Of course you mustn't play the pianoforte, he would say. Only silly females who have no higher accomplishments squander their strength on such an empty pastime. Dancing? No, that is far too fatiguing. May I sit beside you and fan you while you read?”
Ann Herendeen, Pride/Prejudice: A Novel of Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth Bennet, and Their Forbidden Lovers
