Author Biography - Ann Bannon

Ann Bannon (Ann Weldy) is the author of five novels published in the 1950s and 60s. Inspired by the success of the first ever lesbian pulp novel - Spring Fire by Vin Packer - Bannon took up writing as a twentysomething wife and mother who wrote during her spare time. But the success of her books brought her more attention than she wanted, and fearing that she might lose custody of her children, she decided to stop writing.
