Mary Ann Carman was born in Kansas with down home values. While in college she met and married the father of her two boys. After the Air Force sent them to various locations they finally settled in Tucson Arizona and she loves it. "I would go crazy if I didn't have 360 days of sunshine, no snow and no tornadoes." She has always loved to read. "I can be anyone or any place I want and knew that one day I would write. I started out in poetry, then children's books and eventually mystery - in all its various styles." Throughout her life she's worn many hats: wife, mother, nurse, realtor, grand mother and great grand mother. Now along with her reading and writing, she also crochets, knits and works in a local non-profit. Her first book "Never To Love" was originally published by a small press back east, but she re-issued it in the fall of 2014 and followed it over the past couple of years with the rest of the trilogy and the start of two new series.
