About Ann

Ann Otto loves reading about and experiencing history.  Her mother's family always talked about her grandfather, great aunt and famous great Uncle who died in one of the first aeroplane crashes. They left rural Ohio, heading west in around 1909. As she started investigating them, she found that they had the potential for very interesting stories. 

Her first book, Yours in a Hurry is a story about strong women and men who embrace change ahead of their time. At the beginning of the last century, everything was changing so fast –and everyone was in such a hurry! 

Interested in changes going on in America and abroad at the time of the story (1908-12), Ann used actual historical situations they experienced and people they met and created others from coincidences she found along the way.

Ann was born in Marion, Ohio but grew up in Akron. She married her high school sweetheart and has two grown children. A Ph.D. in organization development provides her a lot of experience in the behavioral sciences arena, which gives her the desire to write about people, and an undergraduate degree in English and history influences her desire to write, especially about history. She has published articles in academic and professional journals. In addition to community volunteerism, her interests include reading, history, films, and travel.
