Episode 18 of the Ideas to Books Podcast features an interview with Southern-fried Fiction author Ane Mulligan. Ane has several books published, and her newest release is from her popular Chapel Springs series.
A new love entered my life when I saw Mary Martin in PETER PAN. Struck with a fever from which I never recovered, I submerged myself in drama through high school and college, but, alas, Broadway never found my phone number.
While a large, floppy straw hat is my favorite, I’ve worn many different ones: hairdresser, legislative affairs director (that’s a fancy name for a lobbyist), business manager, creative arts director and writer. My lifetime experience provides a plethora of fodder for my Southern-fried fiction (try saying that three times fast).
I wrote and published my first script in 1996 and to date, I have over 4-dozen scripts in print and numerous articles on various aspects of Christian drama and the craft of writing. In Jan of 2003, having quit my job with my husband’s encouragement, I began to write full time. I reside in Sugar Hill, Georgia with my artist husband, our chef son, and a wooly mammoth…uh, English mastiff.
