Born and raised in Northwest Ohio, Ann currently lives in the beautiful mountains of Northern Arizona. A member of Sisters in Crime and Romance Writers of America for many moons, Ann has a B.A. in English with emphasis on creative writing from the University of Washington. Recently, she was awarded a Distinguished Alumni award for 2015 from Northwest State Community College (NW Ohio) where she received an Associate’s Degree years ago.
When she is not dabbling with her quirky characters in fiction, she is arm wrestling with her two kids, attempting to seduce her husband, and arguing with her sassy cats. Most days, you can find her hanging out over at www.anncharles.com, on Facebook as Ann Charles, or as AnnWCharles on Twitter—especially late at night when her fictional world comes to life.
You don’t want to miss the opportunity to hear Ann Charles in person! The book signing and author presentation will be held in the Carnegie Room of the Main Library. Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
