Born in Dublin in 1965. Ann grew up as any Dublin girl, playing on the street with her pals. Being Irish, friendships are gold dust. Many of her good friends are from childhood and teenage years. She has been fortunate to meet such good hearted people who have supported and given her joy throughout life in Ireland and Switzerland. When you are out having a good time you don't write poems but on the days that are difficult or in that space between awake and asleep thoughts and emotions stir up words that are expressed in the poems. The power of nature also inspires a lot of the ideas.
