Currently, she has several fiction books available: NEARLY DEPARTED IN DEADWOOD, OPTICAL DELUSIONS IN DEADWOOD, DEAD CASE IN DEADWOOD (selected as one of Suspense Magazine's BEST OF 2012 books), and BETTER OFF DEAD IN DEADWOOD, which are all part of her ongoing Deadwood Mystery Series.

She is currently toiling away on her next book, wishing she was on a Mexican beach with an ice-cold Corona in one hand and her Kindle in the other. When she is not dabbling in fiction, she is arm wrestling with her two kids, attempting to seduce her husband, and arguing with her sassy cat. Most nights, you can find her hanging out over at www.anncharles.com, on Facebook as Ann Charles, or as AnnWCharles on Twitter--especially around midnight when her quirky fictional world comes to life.

Wonderful series, Love Violet.  The only thing bad I can say is I was left totally hanging.  Waiting not so patiently for the next book.

This whole series has taken me by surprise. There are sweet moments, funny ones, sexy ones, and then others are scary as hell. My only complaint with the books is I feel that the ghost portion of the series is really dragging along. Every time the reader gets close to figuring out whats going on with the creepy albinos, the book ends. You can tell the writer is getting somewhere with the storyline, it's just taking entirely too long to get there.

An apartment full of Black Forest cuckoo clocks which happens to contain a decapitated body (shrunken head nearby), a picture of a child that should still be safely in your aunt's house, a boss who is encouraging the staff to be on a reality show, encounters with ex's, sick children, and an aunt you thought you knew pretty much everything about throwing you for a loop - Twice!  Yep, it's another Ann Charles Deadwood novel! Violet Parker can't catch a break!  While her friends and family continue to stand with her, Violet finds another body, Harvey's dog finds another foot in a boot, and Detective Cooper has a new level of stress added to his life as he tries to solve the murders.   Speaking of stress, just how does one deal with undead who make cryptic demands?  And just why did Ms. Wolff call Violet minutes before she was murdered...and call her something in...was that German? Only because I've been working 60+hour weeks did it take me as long as it did to read! Ann's books are very difficult for me to put down.

"I was allergic to dominant males. They made me break out in fights." - Violet. Loved this book!!! Could not put it down once I opened! you will need to read the 1st four book before enjoying this book, but once you start reading Ann Charles books you will be hooked!
