About Ann M Streetman:
A degree in journalism and a lifelong communications career introduced me to wonderful people and projects in public affairs, public relations, and association management. But that is behind me.
Now I write romance, a non-fiction book now and then, and children’s books which I illustrate with my own photos and graphics.
Since I am a stickler for accuracy, I do many hours of research into the places and times of my fictional characters.
They are flawed people, oftentimes challenged by difficult circumstances in their lives. Redemption and forgiveness are recurring themes in my novels.
I hope you’ll come along to enjoy the twists and turns in the lives of my characters as they find their way.
What inspires you to write?
My life experiences which include interaction with people and places I have lived and visited inspire me to write. Because my experiences are not exactly like any other person's, these are stories only I can imagine and tell.
Tell us about your writing process.
I am not a "seat of the pants" writer. I develop an outline that changes as the story develops. Because I use both a PC desktop and Apple tablets to outline and write, I use OneNote because it works on all my devices. I can make a quick note on a chapter synopsis on any of my most used devices, which are everywhere in my house.
I do not write every day. After I finish a book, I usually don't start another one right away. I do all those things I did not do when I was pressing hard on that book. When I am in a book process, I like to write at least 1,000 words a day. I have often written 2,000 words a day, and on rare occasions 3,000 to 4,000 words a day. When I start a fresh writing session, I read and edit the previous day's work.
How do you develop your characters?
I create the main characters before I do any plotting. I put on paper when they were growing up, what they were doing in high school and college, and what real world events might have had an impact on their lives. I don't fully know the characters until they start interacting with each other. On my happiest writing days, the characters take over and do things that I had not planned. That's when I know my book is worth my efforts and may be worth a reader's time and imagination in making the story come alive.
Who are your favorite authors?
When I was much younger, I read a lot of Danielle Steel. I love Walter Isaacson biographies and action writers including Vince Flynn.

Who is Dorothy Lyle?
She is a woman who appears super-normal at first glance. She resides in a modest house in a small Irish town, and commutes to a typical office. She’s a lone parent who misses her children now that they are at college. Yet Dorothy is so much more than the obvious. She is a powerful psychic who has been masquerading as normal for twenty years. She is also a woman who has been avoiding men since a nasty breakup and divorce left her reeling in shock while still in her twenties.
The winds of change begin to blow around Dorothy as she approaches her fortieth birthday. An unfortunate affair of the heart means that her daughter, Diane, has distanced herself from her former home and doting mother. Dorothy wonders if some extra cash might alleviate the immediate problem.
Enter the lottery and one hundred and eight-five million tax free dollars.
How easy do you think it is to hide your true self when you unexpectedly become the fortieth richest woman in your own small country?

In a world gripped by organized crime, family dysfunction, and dim hopes of redemption, can true love persevere? For Sophie Taylor, a beautiful psychologist who lost everything when she violated an ethical boundary, and Grant Madsen, a handsome naval officer who sacrificed everything to protect a loved one, finding that love may carry an unbearable cost.
Starting their lives over in Chicago, both are fighting influences from their family and running as fast as they can to escape the past. When their paths cross outside the parole officer’s door, the attraction is instantaneous. But a hidden connection may not only shatter their fledgling love, but prove deadly to them both.
When Alexandria Grace Groaban was a child, she learned she was very different from other children and adults she encountered. She saw and heard things that no child should ever bear witness to. She knew details of things and people long since passed, and she could hear voices and repeat them in whatever language she heard during the scenes which played out before her young and impressionable eyes.
Through an encounter with someone she thought to be her guardian angel, Alexandria was given a reprieve so that she might know some normalcy in her childhood. But at the age of twenty-one, Alexandria returned home to her family’s small estate outside Oxford, England for Christmas, and learned the hard way that her grace period was about to come to an abrupt and vicious end.
Now, whether for better or worse, she will find herself on the edge of a great precipice. One that will call her into action and into a world that she could never have fathomed existed. For Alexandria to know who and what she truly is, she will have to rise to the challenge of a battle that has been waged for millennia by beings first spoken of in Genesis, and embrace that which has lay dormant within her since she was a child.

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write. Just write. You will never know until you try.
Natalie D. Wilson is a lover of the written word by profession and by heart. Her days are spent encouraging the youngsters, at the elementary school where she serves as a library-media specialist, to become lifelong readers. She and her husband, Will, are Georgia natives and the proud parents of four very precocious and messy rescued parrots. The Immortal Reborn series is Natalie’s first foray into the world of authorship, and the development of an idea which first began with a simple piece of music years ago. It is her hope that you will find the world she envisions as captivating as she has, as she developed and imagined the world of the Nephilim.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The idea came to me from a piece of instrumental music.
