Ann Swann


Ann Swann has been a writer since junior high, but to pay the bills she has waited tables, delivered newspapers, cleaned other people’s houses, taught school, and had a stint as a secretary in a rock-n-roll radio station. She also worked as a 911 operator and a police dispatcher.

Her fiction began to win awards during her college days. Since then she’s published several short stories, novels, and novellas. She’s always reading and always writing, but even if no one ever bought another book, Ann would not stop writing. For her it’s a necessity, like breathing. Most of the time, it even keeps her sane.

YA Fiction

When the cosmic fabric separating the dimensions rips open and spits the inhabitants of Purgatory into his hometown, the initial rip is so forceful it kills everyone and everything that isn’t indoors or underground. That’s the only thing that saves 14-year-old Jack is that he just happens to be in the school basement at the time.

The final line from the old children’s prayer, I pray the Lord my soul to take, is infused with new meaning as the creatures from Purgatory appear to be interested in only one thing: fresh, unsullied souls to consume. Eventually, Jack stumbles across a few other survivors: an alcoholic lawyer, a deaf pit bull named Snake, and a small-town real estate agent. Together they are forced to make their final stand. But will anyone survive the onslaught of the TAKERS?

Yeah, But I Didn’t

The first rung: the betrayal
The second rung: the assault
The third rung: the rumors
The fourth rung: the painting
The final rung: no other way out

Benji Stevens is 14 years old when her world falls apart. Betrayed, bullied, and battered emotionally, physically, and spiritually, her life spirals out of control.


I felt it intensely. This is a tough read but a good one, and an easy five stars.
