Ann Boyle is a published author and freelance writer with a diverse background.   

She retired from a 17 year career as a trial attorney to pursue her love of writing.  She spent several years working as a literary agent, first for the Wylie Merrick Literary Agency, and later, on her own.  Aside from the countless freelance articles and stories that she has written, she has had several of her own short stories published (the most recent of which appears in THE BLACK WHOLE Anthology by DIC Press), and her debut novel, “TURN OF THE SENTRY” (a contemporary fantasy/thriller) was recently published by Wild Wolf Publishing (UK).  

 Ann has served as a literacy and creative writing mentor through Literacy Volunteers of America.  She has also worked with the editors at Wolf Pirate Publishing to help establish the “Wolf Pirate Project,” an endeavor designed to support literacy through modern literature while inspiring a love of reading and writing among the younger generation.  Ann is also heavily involved in community outreach and disaster relief through her local church.   

 Ann has spoken to various civic organizations, writers groups and church organizations on a variety of topics, including:

Ann now writes full time and is currently working on her next novel “SOUL OF INNOCENCE” (already under option).  She resides in Southern New Jersey with her husband, two children, two dogs, and two very neurotic hamsters, and is available to travel throughout the Tri-State area.  Her rates are negotiable.  She can be reached via e-mail at or by phone at (856) 728-0671.  You can also contact her through her website ( or Blog (
