The challenge: Time. The solution: send your family away for a week each summer. Author Ann Brooks manages to take a writing vacation each summer by sending her kids and husband out of town. With just a simple plot outline, Ann finishes her rough draft in a few days. Her first published novel, A Lost Woman, is a story of loss, family secrets, and hopeful redemption. This domestic suspense, with an unexpected twist, will have the reader rethinking their notions of love, family, and motherhood.

By day Ann works with children in an elementary school nurturing her love for writing by night, she labors to create a balanced life of work, family, and reaching for her dream of being a writer.
