Writers4Higher welcomes author Ann Mock.
Hi Ann, welcome to Writers4Higher!
1. Tell me about yourself.
I grew up in the South and have always loved the towering oak trees and beautiful southern landmarks which makes the southern
like no other part of the world. I knew if I ever wrote a novel it would need
to take place where I have lived most of my life, which is the South. United
Twenty years ago I visited a Southern mansion in
, that had survived
the War Between the States because it had been used as a hospital for wounded
soldiers. I was fascinated by a Union cannonball that was still lodged in the
door frame over a century later. This inspired me to start my novel, “The Union
of the North and the South”. Vicksburg,
My husband and I have often traveled through the deep South by car, but steaming along the
on the American Queen steamboat gives one a
completely different perspective and made it very special. The experience gave
me so many ideas for my novel. Mississippi
2. Where do you see your writing taking you in the future?
I haven’t decided if I will do a sequel. Writing a book was more work than I ever dreamed it would be, but I learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed the process. I was so honored to earn the five star rating from Readers’ Favorite book review company and if I am well received you never know...
3. How do you use your talents/time to help others?
I love animals and I am using some of the proceeds from the sell of my book to help our local humane societies.
I hope my readers come to realize the power of forgiveness and the happiness it can bring to your life.
