Periodically during 2017, I’m going feature authors from my home state, New Hampshire. We may be a small state, but we are BIG on talent. Please share and follow along with #GraniteStateAuthors, and join me in celebrating these wonderful…
Author: Ana E Ross
Hi, I’m Ana E Ross, a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author. I was born and raised on the small Caribbean island of Nevis, where I began indulging in romance novels at a very early age, and consequently got hooked on the Happily Ever After theory. I always knew that I was born to be a writer, but after years of trying to break into traditional publishing, I set that dream aside to teach Writing and Literature in Middle and High schools.
Thank goodness for self-publishing, that finally gave me the opportunity for my voice to be heard and my stories to reach millions of readers across the globe. I self-published my first short story in December 2011, and then two more in early 2012.
It wasn’t until May 2012 when I released The Doctor’s Secret Bride – Book One, in my Billionaire Brides of Granite Falls series that my writing career took off. I resigned from teaching in 2013 and have since self-published the other four book in that series: The Mogul’s Reluctant Bride, The Playboy’s Fugitive Bride, The Tycoon’s Temporary Bride, and With These Four Rings. I have also published Loving Yasmine and Desire’s Chase – Books 1 & 2 in my Beyond Granite Falls series—a spinoff of my Billionaire Brides series—and I’m currently working on Pleasing Mindy – Book 3.
Although the characters in the two series are connected, each book can be read as a single title, and out of order, as well. However, reading them in order would produce a more enjoyable reading experience as all the characters grow and learn with each installment.
Next on my list is my Billionaire Island Brides series that feature—once again—sexy alpha males and strong beautiful women. The sky’s the limit when it comes to my writing career.
I presently reside in New Hampshire, and I have one child: a beautiful daughter who’s making her own place in the world. She has been my inspiration for pushing forward and reaching for my goals. I love travel, tennis, yoga, meditation, and everything Italian.
I’m always eager to make new friends and meet new readers, so give me a shout-out at http://www.anaeross.com
How long have you lived in New Hampshire?
I’ve called New Hampshire home for twenty-five years, and I absolutely love it here.
Does living here in NH provide inspiration for your writing?
Living in NH most definitely provides me with a plethora of inspiration. There are so many aspects of natural nature packed into this small state: rivers, lakes, mountains, the ocean, small towns and small metropolis, proximity to Boston, not to mention the four seasons.
Do you use New Hampshire and/or New England as a setting in any of your books?
Yes! All five books in my Billionaire Brides of Granite Falls series, and two books from my Beyond Granite Falls series are set in Granite Falls, a fictitious remote mountain town in Northern New Hampshire. Loving Yasmine, the first book in my Beyond Granite Falls series is set in Boston.
What is your favorite time of year in NH and why?
My favorite time of year in NH is the fall season. The temperature is just right and the Fall Foliage is the most beautiful and spectacular sight to behold. I cherish those few short weeks, and usually make sure that I hike up at least one mountain to enjoy the amazing views.
