Hope Ann is a Christian, and loves writing! She live with her parents and eight younger siblings on their small farm in Indiana. She was homeschooled, and now helps teach some of her younger siblings.
She writes because she must. She is filled with stories and books that are burning to get told on paper and, since for every story she writes, three or four more comes to take its place, she doubt she will ever stop writing.
For the most part, Hope writes fiction: allegorical fantasy being her favorite genre. But her goal in writing is not just to entertain. She also want to inspire to godliness.
Hope absolutely loves reading. History is her main interest, especially the Greek/Roman period and the WWII era.
She likes reading fiction too. The list of her favorite authors and books are quite extensive; authors like J. R. R. Tolkien, Charles Dickens, and Mark Twain. And then there are more modern authors, like Serena Chase, Nadine Brandes, Gillian Bronte Adams, Wayne Thomas Batson…and the list could go on and on.
Other hobbies of Hope includes photography, making movies, knitting, writing numerous letter and e-mails, and collecting all kinds of shiny things for what she claims is story inspiration.
