Ann has written four novels, details of which are listed below.
The Dancing Detective (2014)
The Dancing Detective is a traditional detective novel set in contemporary Britain.
When a murder is committed backstage on a popular TV dance competition, no judge or contestant is above suspicion. As events escalate and it seems that the murderer may strike again, the crime-solving efforts of the police are supplemented with those of a mysterious dancing detective in a desperate race to discover whodunit. Moving between past and present and unearthing long held secrets along the way, this is a case teeming with possible motives and in which nothing is as it first seems.
