Ann St. Clair

More Info

Ann St. Clair was born in Washington D.C. and grew up in New York City where she constantly wore black and read Sartre on the subway. Her father did some sort of ill-defined government work, and from an early age, she was surrounded by people and ideas from around the world. As a teenager, she tripped into a summer job as receptionist at British Information Service in the RCA Building in New York, where she became fascinated by the public relations operation of a government in a foreign country. She enjoyed working in daytime TV where her most stirring line was: “The doctor will see you now.” Ann graduated from Sarah Lawrence College, where she ate, breathed and slept English literature and history, and took a year-long Bible course that changed her life. She has finished writing several books, including a coming of age novel called Marta Byrd, and she is working on a clutch of tales featuring eccentric characters in Israeli Secret Service. She likes living in the Berkshires, where she enjoys theatre and intrigue, and she loves to laugh.
