Ann Williams resides in the same small South Carolina town in which she traces her roots back to the pre-civil war era. ​​​​
Ann leaves her home early with work boots on and hard hat in tow. She returns some fourteen plus hours later, after a long day on the job. On her off days she spends the same amount of time working towards her literary goals. The craft of writing is a self taught art, also the business of publishing, which she states is an ongoing education. Being a member of various writers’ organizations over the years has been her lifeline to the world of literary arts.  After raising three children and at the age of fifty-two she has released her debut novel.
