A little bit about me.-It's from my website so it's written in third person. Not that I mind referring to myself in third person, I just usually like to wear my princess crown while doing it. -

Ann is Queen of the Castle to her wonderful husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead(though she will deny to her children that it ever happened).

From a young age she's been fascinated by myths and fairytales, and the romance that often was the center of the story. As Ann grew older and her hormones kicked in, she discovered trashy romance novels. Great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back. Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has learned to type one handed while soothing a cranky baby.



I decided to start writing in June of '10 after the pre-mature birth of my third son. He was born at 31 weeks, nine weeks early, and it was a very rough delivery. I lost a great deal of blood and had some touch and go moments. While I was recovering from my c-section, without my baby, I had a lot of time to think. In my morphine pumped induced state, I considered all the things that I'd done and what I still wanted to do.

I'd had A LOT of fun in my life, and marrying my husband and having my children was a joy that I can never fully explain. One thing I'd wanted to do was write a book. I've always been a heavy reader, my husband used to moan at my monthly bills from the bookstore, and I have an over-active imagination. The trouble was focusing my ADD 'Oh look a squirrel, oh look a penny' self to sit down and write.

The idea for Blessed, my debut Paranormal Romance came to me one night in a dream. I was sitting in a lecture hall while my amazingly handsome professor was teaching. I 'knew' we had a hot and steamy secret relationship going on outside of the classroom. That there was something special about us that set us apart from the rest of the class, something magical. He paused in his lecture and looked up at me with eyes as green as pine trees. The dream shifted into something boring after that, but the image of our eyes meeting and that zap of erotic electricity stayed with me. As time went on, I began to imagine a story for him.

That story soon took on a life of its own, and Blessed was born. After that, the floodgates were opened and I've been abandoning myself to my muse ever since.

I hope that you enjoy my book. It is my fondest wish to bring happiness into your life, and to bring you a story about the kind of love that I think everyone deserves mixed with a dash of magic and humor.

Greetings and Welcome, Ann!! We are so glad you found KindleBoards! We have many areas that you probably will like. Have you been to The Book Corner yet? That's the area for discussions about books (naturally :D ). That's also where you will find threads about books Recommended by our Members and a list of additional sites for Book Lovers.
Then there is the Book Bazaar where our member/authors post about their books and the Writers' Cafe that has discussions about writing, publishing and many other topics. Here is a link to all the KindleBoards authors:Unofficial master list of Kindleboards Authors. That is also where you will locate Bargain Books and even Free Books threads where you can get reading material at low or no cost! Here is a link to get you started: Master list of free & under $1 titles available from Amazon.
If you have a question about your Kindle or it's usage, check out the FAQ or the forum about Tips, Tricks and Trouble Shooting . Or, just ask your question. We have many helpful and knowledgeable people here at KB and we feel there is no such thing as a "dumb" question. Questions about KindleBoards may be answered at Your guide to Forum Speak! linked from Forum tips. If not, once again, ask away! To keep everything running smoothly, we ask that everyone read Forum decorum. There are a few points there particularly for authors. Need help setting up your signature line or avatar? This will be just what you need: Creating Signatures - An Updated tutorial.
Another popular place is Let's Talk Kindle, where all things in the Kindle world are posted about. Be sure and check out the Photo Gallery, where pictures of members, pets, flowers, landscapes or just almost anything interesting can be found.
Have you been to the Accessories area? There you will see information about covers, skins, lights, bags, stands and many other items to allow you to personalize your Kindle.
Looking to just kill some time while you are waiting for your Kindle or if you have your kindle, want to try something different? Try INFINITY Game - Word Association or The "INFINITY" Thread: KEEP POSTING...Ready, Set,... GO!!! in the Not Quite Kindle area.
Sorry for the long post, but there is just so much to do, learn and like about KindleBoards that I just get carried away. :)

Ann,

Now that you've broken the ice with your first post, and figured out Link-Maker, you can add your books to your forum profile signature.  (Go to to Profile on the top menu bar, then select Forum Profile Information on the left side menu.  You'll find the signature text box.  Just bear in mind that forum guidelines call for no more than two lines of text plus an image or images of 125 pixels in height (the height used for the image in your post).

And you'll want to start a thread for your book so that you can be listed in Jeff's master lists.

Hi Ann!

Welcome to the Kindle boards!  It's great to have another writer here--if you check out the 'writer's cafe', a child of the Book Bazaar, that's where we all hang out.

Thanks so much for the warm welcome :) I need to play around with the boards and set up my signature and all that good stuff, but I'm really excited to be here. As a new author it's still all very surreal and every time I see my book cover I get a little jolt of excitement at the thought that I actually wrote that.
