Ann Ireland

I have been a fan of Ann Ireland’s writing since she won the Seal First Novel Award in 1985. I enrolled in several online writing courses with Ann through the Chang School of Continuing Education and highly recommend her as a knowledgeable and supportive teacher. I’ve read all her novels and enjoy her writing immensely, so I’m pleased to now feature Ann Ireland on Reading Recommendations!

What is your latest release and what genre is it? The Blue Guitar – Literary Fiction

Quick description: Musicians from all over the world gather in Montreal for an International competition. It’s make or break time. A lapse of memory, a broken fingernail, a shaky right hand can ruin years of preparation.
