About Ann Stafford
I'm Ann Stafford. (Ann is actually my middle name, but has a nice suspense author sound to it.) I used to think I was a romance writer, but discovered that my stories ended up with some hunky guy saving the damsel in the distress and I get bored to tears with plain old love stories. I also realized that my preferred reading was about spies, detectives, private eyes and rogues. So now I write those types of books with a little bit of romance thrown in most of them.
I love anticipation more than I love horror details, so the suspense/thriller genre is the best fit for me.
I currently live in Branson, MO with my husband, musician Kevin Stafford. We are empty nesters with five grown children and 9 grandchildren.
When I'm not trying to figure out how to hide dead bodies or commit the perfect crime or chasing down bad guys, I'm out living the music life. But we also enjoy a quiet home life with as much down-time as possible.
