Ann Herrick grew up in Connecticut and now lives in Oregon with her husband, who was her high-school sweetheart. Their wonderful daughter is grown, married and gainfully employed, and has given Ann her only grand-dog, Puff, a bloodhound-rottweiller-beagle mix. While she misses the East Coast, especially houses built before 1900, she enjoys the green valleys, fresh air and low humidity in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Ann loves cats, walking and working in her back yard. In addition to stories and books for children and young adults, Ann also writes copy for humorous and conventional greeting cards.
Her book, The Perfect Guy, published by Bantam, reissued by Hard Shell Word Factory, is an IRA/CBC Choice book, a YALSA Quick Picks for Reluctant YA book and is on the AR List (Accelerated Reader, through Renaissance Learning), and has its own AR Quiz, No. 109785.
