Ann (A. E.) Cannon was born in Salt Lake City but grew up in Provo, Utah where she attended public schools and graduated from Brigham Young University. When Ann was six, she was hospitalized for kidney disease and missed a year of school, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. She became an avid reader and gained a lifelong interest in books written for young readers. While in graduate school, Ann took an adolescent literature class that changed her life. She began writing novels for young adults and eventually won the Delacorte Press Prize for CAL CAMERON BY DAY, SPIDER-MAN BY NIGHT. Since then she has published thirteen more books, including CHARLOTTE’S ROSE and (mostly recently) SOPHIE’S FISH. Ann has also published feature articles in local and national magazines and currently writes a weekly column for The Salt Lake Tribune ( She and her husband, Ken, are the parents of five sons and have welcomed three daughters-in-law and two granddaughters into the family. Ann and Ken live in Salt Lake City with two dogs, two cats, two parakeets and one parrot. Visit her on facebook or at
