Mehr über den Autor

From her early days, growing up on the western frontier of Pennsylvania, Ann McMan found creative ways to exercise her gift for fiction. Her first literary endeavors were modest--mostly confined to aphorisms scrawled on cracked pavement with colored chalk.

"FREE UPPER VOLTA!"

But as the years passed and her skills increased, she branched out into literary nonfiction--best exemplified by the abstracts that follow.

"Please excuse Ann from gym this week; she has contracted a virulent case of Norwegian Scabies."

Sometimes, the performances were less effective.

"Please excuse Ann from this week's field trip to the IXL Cottage Cheese Creamery. She is suffering from acute bouts of ague and malaria--which, combined, render it impossible for her to travel by bus."

[Ann was unaware that outbreaks of malaria were extremely rare in the Allegheny Mountains. Four days in after-school detention helped her cultivate a greater appreciation for the rigors of research.]

College at an indifferent liberal arts institution taught Ann that understanding subject/verb agreement was not enough to secure her fame and fortune. After graduation, she got a job driving a young adult bookmobile--and spent her days piloting the great rig across the dusty back roads of rural North Carolina. Her duties included making certain that the mobile library always contained at least six copies of Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, visiting the county juvenile detention unit (it was a great way to catch up with her brothers), and showing public service films about safe sex to pre-teens at 4-H Clubs all across her part of "The New South."

Soon, the allure of higher education coaxed Ann back to school. For the past three decades, Ann has worked at a succession of premier institutions, designing marketing and advancement materials that promote, promulgate, and extol the benefits of indifferent liberal arts education.

Somebody has to do it.

All this time, she continued to write. And when, at the ripe old age of thirty, she realized that she was not like other girls, the great world of lesbian literature opened its arms, and provided her with a safe haven in which to grow and learn about her new identity. She will forever be indebted to those literary pioneers who had the courage, the talent, and the temerity to gift us all with an art form of our own. Ann's first and subsequent attempts at writing lesbian fiction have been heartfelt attempts to pay that great gift forward.

Her themes are absolutely timeless--they are built around the things that make the world go 'round, like love, money, and modern class distinctions. She writes to what we all respect: the genuine, the authentic, and the deserving. Yet she mocks those things that we all despise, like the affected, the pretentious, and the malicious. Ann McMan wields a metaphorical church key that opens up a world that is broader than two women in love, richer than a small cadre of supporting characters, and more colorful than her colloquial dialogue. She is smart, funny, and unapologetic in her prose, and has the confidence never to talk down to her readers. And, because she understands that for women, the romantic hope and even fantasy that lives inside each and every one of us is a reality that complicates and colors life to an astonishing degree.

As an author, Ann isn't afraid to give voice to cruelty, exploitation of the vulnerable, and soul-deep suffering, but she is remorseless about any kind of falseness, in feeling, or manner or conduct. Women and men who try to be what they are not get skewered within in her pages, held up for ridicule such that they condemn themselves out of their very own mouths. And all of them, through her deliberately expansive domestic circles, are metaphors for those things we all recognize in our own everyday lives, no matter where or how we live.

Ann McMan is the author of four novels, JERICHO, DUST, AFTERMATH, and HOOSIER DADDY--and the story collection SIDECAR. She released the holiday omnibus collection, THREE in December of 2012,

She is currently writing BACKCAST, the further adventures of the CLIT-Con 13 from SIDECAR's "Bottle Rocket, and PATRIARCH, the third book in the JERICHO series.

Ann won a Golden Crown Literary Society Award for SIDECAR in 2013, and has been named a finalist in the Lesbian Romance category of the 2014 Lambda Literary Awards for HOOSIER DADDY.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Syd verlässt ihren chronisch untreuen Ehemann und nimmt vorübergehend eine Stelle als Bibliothekarin in einer provinziellen Gemeinde an. Doch anstatt wie erhofft in der Stille und Abgeschiedenheit der Appalachen emotional zur Ruhe zu kommen, gerät ihre Welt erst recht aus den Fugen als sie die Ärztin, Elektrogerätesanitäterin und Wuchtbrumme der Region, Maddie Stevenson, kennenlernt.

In mustergültigem Tempo führt die Autorin die sympathischen Einwohner des Dörfchens ein. Roma Jean, ihres Zeichens liebeskranker Teenager und Schwerkraftopfer. David, Maddies bester Freund und Enfant terrible. Mrs. Hawkes, die geschwätzige Krankenschwester, und noch viele mehr. Auch die für die Geschichte weniger wichtigen Charaktere sind liebevoll ausgearbeitet und durchwegs dreidimensional, was mit Sicherheit einen großen Anteil daran hat, dass man sich in dem Dörfchen schnell heimisch fühlt.

Mit 416 Seiten gehört Jericho in diesem Genre schon zu den etwas längeren Büchern, leider verliert es gegen Ende hin an Schubkraft. So liebenswert die beiden Frauen auch sind, für ihr Alter und ihre doch ungewöhnlich gute Ausbildung sind sie meiner Meinung nach zu unsicher. Auch ein wenig unglaubwürdig ist, dass bis auf ein einzelnes schwarzes Schaf offenbar niemand ein Problem mit Lesben und Schwulen hat. Familienmitglieder, Angestellte, Kunden, selbst Fremde, alle sind perfekt unvoreingenommen und neutral. Ausgerechnet in den USA? Auf dem Land? Schön wär's! Gegen Ende der Geschichte wird noch ein weiterer Erzählstrang eingeflochten, in dem es um einen Knirps von fünf Jahren geht, den Maddie zufällig am Flughafen kennenlernt. Niedlich? Ja. Unterhaltend? Ja. Glaubwürdig?

Heute morgen begonnen und ich mag es gar nicht mehr aus der Hand legen. Eine tolle Story, ohne überzogen zu sein. Die Handlung ist zwar - wie bei 99% aller Bücher - absehbar, dennoch lässt die Story einen mitfiebern, mitlachen, einfach daran teilhaben.

Wer ein gutes Buch sucht, dem kann ich dieses hier nur empfehlen. Ann McMan schreibt erfrischend und humorvoll.

A great 1st book by the author 9. Februar 2012
Von Carol A. Bailey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed this book, and a good bit of that was because both Syd and Maddie came across as being three dimensional characters. Syd is dealing with a failed marriage and trying to figure out what happens next in her life. As a result, she takes a temporary (18 month) job setting up a library in the rural town of Jericho. In her opinion this is the perfect opportunity to reevaluate her life. While there meets and becomes friends with the local Doctor, Maddie.

The reader gets to go along for the ride as these two develop and a strong supportive friendship. From my perspective the friendship felt "real" as if it could happen in real life.

This was a very good read; I was engaged the entire time and had a difficult time putting the book down. However, I will say near the end of the book I started to feel like the author may have gotten stuck and just started throwing things at the wall to see what would stick and progress the story forward: family issues, an outside threat, death, destruction, and foster kids. I mention it because it was enough that I actually noticed all these significant life events happening at the end when even one or two would have been more than enough. It didn't detract from the story but the thought did provide a bit of amusement for me.

The book is certainly worth reading I'll be starting her second story "Dust" next

A really well written Lesbian Romance with awesome dialogue 8. März 2013
Von Oscar Ananda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I read a lot of lesbian fiction and Jericho by Ann McMan is really high on my list that I would recommend for a really well written lesbian romance with awesome dialogue. I really enjoyed how it does not follow the typical arch of lesbian romance where girl meets girl, there is some conflict, then they fall madly in love and have mind blowing sex. This is different and has a complimentary cast of characters which for the most part really add to the entire story. What is a true standout is the dialogue. It is smart and funny with a razor sharpness that is quite creative. I do not think anyone who reads this book will be disappointed with it.

Interesting and well developed characters populate this terrific novel 23. April 2012
Von coopsmom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I read all of the earlier reviews and decided this book was worth a try- I was so surprised just HOW MUCH I loved this book! So much of this genre is predictable and cliche yet this story held my rapt attention (to the point of staying up until 4 am reading one night/morning).

I have to admit that I found a few of the plot devices a little too convenient, and the amazing acceptance of all family members was warm, yet slightly unbelievable but the terrific intelligent dialogue and the two smart, imperfect protagonists made this a book I will likely re-read in the future.

As soon as I finished reading this book today, I looked to see if Ms. McMan had written anything else and I was so pleased to find her second novel. Guess what I just bought?

Strikingly Personal & Original 23. Februar 2012
Von J. L. Wheeler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really, really enjoyed this read. After finishing, I immediately bought the author's other novel. The character's are relatable, refreshingly real, and funny. The dialogue is whip-smart, the situations are believable, and the emotions very well displayed. Each character felt unique and not just a facet of the author's own personality. There were aspects of each character that I disliked as well as liked, and that made the novel even more enjoyable.

After reading the author's other novel, I see that one of her strengths (in my humble opinion) is dialogue. The flirting between the two main characters in this novel was funny and adorable, and I caught myself laughing out loud and even blushing along with them. Another strength I noticed was the dedication to research. This author clearly knows what she's talking about in both books, granting the characters even more credibility.

Great read, a little long and a little long-winded at times, but great nonetheless. I highly recommend it to those looking for something outside of the antiquated romance novel formula.

I was enchanted 3. März 2014
Von Lee Lynch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I woke up mornings looking forward to reading Ann McMan's Jericho. The novel is literate, well-reseached, filled with humor and a seductive, discrete, sexual tension I have not encountered in a book for a very long time. The characters were compelling. The dialogue, including the plentiful intelligent banter, was charming and expressive. I enjoyed McMann's presentation of the acceptance the gay characters find. It was both a forecast of our future and a portrait of the way it's always been when most straight people get to know the person, not the stereotype. A lovely, lovely book, deliciously long and sensual in setting and action. Thank you, Ann McMan, we need you.
