Author L.U. Ann moved to Colorado from the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband and two children in 2012. For the first time she's landlocked! Never living more than 50 miles from a super large body of water (most would call an ocean), life in Colorado is so much different. In Maryland, you would find her in the garden tending to her vegetables and flowers, sea glass and shark tooth hunting once a week, and enjoying the kids swimming in the backyard. Now, life has taken a drastic change. She now enjoys (or pretends to enjoy) their own "Little House on the Prairie" at an elevation of over 6,000 feet above sea level, and a semi-arid climate that makes it hard to grow anything. While barely anything can grow where she resides now, the wildlife makes up for it. Mountain Lions, and coyotes, and rattlesnakes, oh my!
She now has horses, ducks, chickens and more. Taking care of the small farm, she tries to spend a little time each day writing, but domestic chores around the house usually take precedence. She would much rather hide them from her husband. She tends to her loving four-legged children who at times become much too demanding when she locks herself in the office. This often results in MORE domestic work, and she finds herself cleaning up after their deviant behavior.
At night, you'll find her begging the kids to go to bed so that she can catch up on the latest book before her sister can. Yes, she is an avid reader who escapes her chaotic but wonderful home to the feisty depths of romance land in search of her newest book boyfriend. Shh, don't tell her husband!
She is an artist by the grace of God. She worked as a set designer for six years, helping establish a local children's theatre where she was the scenery artist, set, and prop designer. Before that, you would find her covered in paint, so engrossed in painting a mural that time didn't exist. Graphic design is her guilty pleasure.
Destructive Silence was her debut novel in 2013. She's finished the three-book series and went on to try something a little different: CHICKLIT! Oh my, has she realized this is not her genre. She craves the angst and suspense found in her previous three titles. She's now onto a romantic suspense thriller and can't wait for its release in 2016!
