I also wanted to introduce you to my friend and writer, Ann. She is one of the first people I met at VCFA, a firecracker of a storyteller, huge open heart, joy of living, and a really dark sense of humour. You’ll see.
“Ann Dávila Cardinal is a novelist and Director of Recruitment for Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA) where she also earned her MFA in Writing. A self-described Gringa-Rican, she comes from a long line of Puerto Rican writers, including poets Virgilio and José Antonio Dávila and her cousin, fiction writer Tere Dávila. Ann lives in Vermont with her husband Doug where she needle felts small reading creatures, and bikes four seasons a year. You can find her on Twitter at @anndcardinal.” (From an interview with her on Bookriot.
Last year, her book FIVE MIDNIGHTS came out and it’s been so amazing to see all the places her book is showing up, friends’ conversations and national awards. Have a look at the interview I just quoted to find out more. You can get a copy here.
This year, look for FIVE MIDNIGHTS. Seriously. Grab a copy. Support a writer I love.
