Ann M. Skelton
Author, Educator, International Consultant
About the Author
Ann’s personal goal is to dedicate herself to perfecting the craft of writing. Once she left international consulting and the need to concentrate on making business writing coherent and lively, she began working on children’s stories. However, old family stories led her into historical fiction and poetry. She now concentrates on short fiction as well as middle grade children’s stories.
Her prize-winning short story “Prairie Winds” and the poem Driving the Blue Ridge in October can be seen on the Virginia Writers Club site Golden Nib Awards for 2014. www.virginiawritersclub.org. Her children’s story, Lessons from Grandfather Jim, appeared in the 2013 anthology, Harboring Secrets. She contributes to Chesapeake Style magazine on topics relating to writing.
Ann was born and raised in Chicago and moved to Williamsburg with her husband in 2010 after retiring from a career in international consulting and education. Her teaching career included a two-year stint in the Peace Corps teaching university students and professors in Venezuela. While in the Northeast, Ann remained in education, developing and teaching university courses in composition and communications in the Hartford Connecticut area and later in Maryland and Washington, D.C.
She holds a Master degree in literature from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut.
