About Ann Boelter
Ann Boelter lives on a farm with her husband in the western US and enjoys anything and everything outdoors. She is an avid horsewoman and gardener who loves raising goats and growing giant pumpkins. When she was younger she traveled extensively throughout North America, Europe, Africa, and The South Pacific. She worked at a variety of jobs, from packing caviar at a salmon cannery in South Naknek, Alaska, to driving a forklift in Key Largo, Florida, before ultimately becoming a medical professional. Through all of that, she always felt the draw to write fiction. After placing second with two novels in two separate genres (historical romance and contemporary mainstream) in a national contest, she began to focus more seriously on writing. She draws upon her vast travel experience and diverse cultural exposure to create vivid, unique characters set in rich, deep, believable settings.
Ann has three rules of writing based on her major pet peeves as a reader. 1. A series should be a series of related stories, not one story chopped into bits to sell more books. 2. Love scenes should be tastefully erotic, and occur where they fit—after a buildup of attraction and sexual tension, not random gratuitous sex thrown in. 3. A book should be well-edited and proofread before it is released. If it is not, then it’s still a draft and should not be sold as a finished product.
