Ann's writing makes up an eclectic body of work, ranging from a Harlem Renaissance blues player, to the story of a black woman boxer, Korean War Marines, the life of Nelson Mandela, a remake of A Star Is Born
and, most recently, a forbidden love affair between a woman officer and an enlisted man on a U.S. Navy Destroyer. Ann, a long-time fan of C.S. Lewis
, was both thrilled and honored to be asked to adapt The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. She lives in Los Angeles.
