Welcome to My World

Welcome to Ann About Town

Welcome, I’m Ann—the face behind ABC Spa Escape, the creator of Ann About Town, and (hopefully) someone you will want to get to know better. I have been writing since I was a child; poetry, fiction, prose, magazine articles, journals, and now this.

I write a lot about pets, dining out, travel, wine and food-tastings; as well as many of the life events and happenings that affect us all–including aging, dealing with our aging parents, and coping with life in general. I also accept guest posts that fall into any of these categories too.

Southern California has always been my home; moving back and forth from Los Angeles County to Orange County and now back to Los Angeles County. My sister & nephew live in Texas now, but I visit them regularly. Mom & step-Dad were in Corpus Christi, Texas; but both passed away within weeks of each other. Dad lived near Albuquerque, New Mexico, although he died of cancer; and my brother and his wife are about a mile away from me.

I’m divorced with a full house (including a roommate, 2 dogs and 3 cats).  I work full-time during the week, and have several of my own direct sales businesses, including Limelight by Alcone products and Young Living Essential Oils. I have friends, family and a significant other; all of which will probably show up here in story form from time to time.

There are lots of things I love:  reading, writing, travel, photography, shopping, wine-tasting, hanging out with old friends and making new ones; this list is endless.  So I hope you’ll sign up for my newsletter, stop by often to see what I have to say, and please leave me a comment or two; let me know if there’s something you’d like to hear or want to know.

Comments, inquiries, special requests and questions are welcome.
