The Remains in the Pond VBT

Senior prom is the happiest night of Gabi’s life. Her crush has just revealed that he is every bit as infatuated with her as she is with him. When he has a car wreck and is transported to the hospital in a coma, Gabi feels as if she’s taken a knife to the heart. But his jealous cousin, Rose, sees her chance to give the knife an even harder twist. She convinces Gabi to meet her at a local parking spot outside town. It's a night that will change several lives forever. One of the girls will return, and one will become known as the remains in the pond.

Ann, thanks so much for stopping by. So, how did you get started writing?
I wrote stories in a spiral notebook in Jr. High, but I didn’t publish any until college when I won a short story contest.

What was the inspiration for your book?
The Remains in the Pond was inspired by an image in a movie. It showed a white skull barely visible in a murky pond.

What’s the one genre you haven’t written in yet that you’d like to?
I would like to write a medical romance like A Walk to Remember.

Are there any genres you won’t read or write in? Why?
Nope. Can’t think of any.

What are you up to right now? Do you have any releases planned, or are you still writing?
Yes, I have book four in my Phantom series getting ready for release soon. I also have another YA novel that will come after than, and now I am working on a romance set near Stutter Creek.

Alright, now for some random questions. Favorite color?

Favorite movie?

Book that inspired you to become an author?
Red Sky at Morning.

You have one superpower. What is it?
The ability to make everyone kind.

You can have dinner with any 3 people, dead, alive, fictitious, etc. Who are they?
My father who died when I was eight; my mother who died a few years ago; my sister who died last year. We would all sit around talking about books.

Last question: Which of your characters are you most like and how/why?
Stevie-girl from the Phantom series because she is based on the me I wish I had been.

Author Bio:
Ann has been a writer since junior high school, but to pay the bills she’s waited tables, delivered newspapers, cleaned other people's houses, taught school, and even had a short stint as a secretary in a rock-n-roll radio station. She also worked as a 911 operator and a police dispatcher.

Ann’s stories began to win awards in her college days. Since then she’s published novels, novellas, and short stories. But even if no one ever bought another book, Ann wouldn’t stop writing. For her it’s the cathartic pause in a sometimes-crazy world. Most of the time, it even keeps her sane.
