Ann Hite’s formative years were spent in Atlanta, Georgia, during the sixties with her extended family, who believed the south was a country of its own. From this lethal combination was born a writer, who to this day finds the characters from her family’s past creeping into her prose. Ann is the mother of four daughters, ranging from 30 to 5 years old, and has the privilege to be stepmother to her 17-year-old stepson. Ann has completed her first novel, Sleeping Above Chaos, writes short stories and poems. Ann has published short stories and essays both online and in print with publications including Skyline Magazine, Wild Violet, Long Story, The Dead Mule, and Fiction Warehouse.
