Ann Cannon

Author Type: 
Children, Middle-Reader and Young Adult

A.E. Cannon is an award-winning writer of fiction for children and young adults. She is also a newspaper columnist, creative writing teacher and the mother of five sons. Her first young adult novel, Cal Cameron by Day, Spider-Man by Night, won the Delacorte Press Prize for an outstanding first young adult novel. Since then, she has published a number of books, including a collection of her newspaper columns. Subsequent Young Adult novels have been named to the American Library Association's Best Books lists, while her weekly column in the Salt Lake Tribune has found a wide on-line readership.

Ann credits her life-long passion for books to a childhood illness that put her in bed for a year. "I had strict instructions from our doctor--no walking, no running, no swimming, no biking. With nothing else to do, I was forced to discover books. Before I knew it, books moved into my life permanently, setting up house and lounging around in chairs and on the foot of my bed just like a crowd of favorite cousins. They introduced me to people who had tea parties on the ceiling and others who went down rabbit holes. I eventually got better, but I asked the books to stay anyway. They did."
