ane-mulliganWhile a large, floppy straw hat is her favorite, Ane Mulligan has worn many different ones: hairdresser, Legislative Affairs Director (that’s a fancy name for a lobbyist), drama director, playwright, humor columnist, and novelist. Her lifetime experience provides a plethora of fodder for her Southern-fried fiction (try saying that three times fast).

Ane firmly believes coffee and chocolate are two of the four major food groups. Her passion, when she isn’t writing her Southern-fried Fiction, is Community Theatre. She’s Creative Director of Players Guild@Sugar Hill, an avocational non-profit theatre group, where she and her husband act, direct, build sets, and are chief gofers.

Contributor to the award-winning literary site, Novel Rocket, Ane resides in Sugar Hill, GA, with her artist husband, her chef son, and a woolly mammoth.
