2015 Book Festival Author
Ann Garvin

Ann Garvin is a fiction writer who makes a living as a scientist and educator. Decades of teaching health and studying what makes people tick proved a perfect backdrop for her novels On Maggie's Watch and, most recently, The Dog Year.

A Kirkus review praised The Dog Year as "Hopeful but not saccharine, this novel offers a deeply sympathetic view of recovery from grief."

Her teaching position as an adjunct in the Masters of Fine Arts program at Southern New Hampshire University allows her to marry her love of people, story, and writing and help others do the same.

Garvin, a natural storyteller, is a sought-after speaker and educator at conferences where writing, health, and human nature is discussed.
