Multi-award winning author, Ann Hunter, is the creator of the young adult fantasy series Crowns of the Twelve (including the novels The Subtle Beauty, Moonlight, Fallen, with A Piece of Sky, Ashes, and The Rose In The Briar to follow). She likes cherry soda with chocolate ice cream, is a mom first and a writer second, has a secret identity, and thinks the Twilight movies are cheesier than cheez whiz (which is why they are her guilty pleasure!)

She lives in a cozy Utah home with her two awesome kids and epic husband.

The 4 books I've put out this year have already been nominated for several awards, and I don't expect my good fortune to stop there. I make good money too, for just starting out.
But you know what? None of that matters.
It matters that my writing makes ME happy. And I try very hard to send a message with each book that will speak to readers.
I will measure my success by the effect my books have on other people's souls.
With each book I finish, I feel successful. Fulfilled. That is how I measure my success. (less)

Then I ask my husband. Then I pray some more. Then I listen for those still small voices I hear of my characters and start writing whatever they say. We get moving again.(less)

Author Life

Recently I had the pleasure of going back to California for a Meet the Authors fundraiser. My mom is on the Library Foundation board, and invited me back home for the event. I thought I'd document my experience.

First of all, I took my eldest daughter to school, and then hubby, the 4yo, and I drove to SLC Intl Airport. I was afraid I wouldn't make my flight, because the line through security was... Read more of this blog post »

“I hope your bacon burns.”
Diana Wynne Jones , Howl's Moving Castle

“Remember that life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away!”
Vicki Corona, Tahitian Choreographies: Intermediate to Advanced Level Female Instruction

“Go on, she urged. Lie to me by the moonlight. Do a fabulous story.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gatsby Girls

“And then I feel as if I'm witnessing a miracle, as ever so slowly she raises her face towards the moon. I watch her drink in the sight, sensing the flood of memories she's unleashed and wanting nothing more than to let her know I'm here. But instead I stay where I am and stare up at the moon as well. And for the briefest instant, it almost feels like we're together again.”
Nicholas Sparks, Dear John

“Her beauty is not just—or even primarily—physical. In her face, I see her wisdom, her compassion, her courage, her eternal glory. This other beauty, this spiritual beauty—which is the deepest truth of her—sustains me in times of fear and despair, as other truths might sustain a priest enduring martyrdom at the hands of a tyrant. I see nothing blasphemous in equating her grace with the mercy of God, for the one is a reflection of the other. The selfless love that we give to others to the point of being willing to sacrifice our lives for them, is all the proof I need that human beings are not mere animals of self-interest; we carry within us a divine spark, and if we chose to recognize it, our lives have dignity, meaning, hope. In her it is spark is bright, a light that heals rather than wounds me.”
Dean Koontz, Seize the Night
