Ann Swann was born in the small West Texas town of Lamesa. She grew up much like Stevie in Stevie-girl and the Phantom Pilot (though she never got up the nerve to enter the haunted house). Before becoming a published author, Ann did everything from answering 911 Emergency calls to scheduling commercials in a rock-n-roll radio station to teaching elementary school. She still lives in Texas with her sweetheart, Dude, and their rescue cat, Mojo. When she’s not writing, Ann is reading. Her to-be-read list has grown so large it has taken on a life of its own. She calls it Herman. As in Munster.
