Ann is a former educator who took up her pen (or, to be more exact, her keyboard) in 2015 and began a second career as a writer. Her award-winning marine articles have appeared in All at Sea, Chesapeake Style, and Chesapeake Bay Magazine, earning her three consecutive Boating Writers International Awards. A scuba divemaster, avid sailor, and a private pilot, she is also something of an adventurer who counts sailing her boat to the Bahamas with husband Eric and their children as her favorite accomplishment. Her experiences have helped form the character of her Lies murder mystery heroine, Sandi Beck, a liveaboard sailor and fiercely independent woman with a gift for solving problems.
A camping enthusiast and lover of all things vintage, Ann is also the creator of Motorhome Magazine‘s “Classic Ride” column. When they aren’t sailing or camping, she and Eric can be found along the Rappahannock River, where they continue the unending renovation of their 1886 farmhouse.
