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 cats, Oscar and 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.
