About Ann

AnnChristy2014SuperSmallI’m a recently retired Navy Commander and secret science fiction writer. Since retiring, I work on my books as obsessively as I worked for the military and I still can’t figure out what I should wear if I can’t wear a uniform. I live by the sea under the benevolent rule of my canine overlords and a variety of unruly family members.

My first published series, Silo 49, cemented my desire to write fiction and it’s paved the way for a whole slew of new books. Strikers, Yankari: A Talking Earth Tale, The In-Betweener as well as a bunch of creepy (or creepily-cool) stories in published anthologies have already come out. And there is so much more to come.

I love to hear from readers so drop me a line! (No, really, I’m not even just saying that to be nice. I really do love to hear from readers!)

    Er… Google just filtered your “New Book Release by Ann Christy – Get it Cheap!” as spam. I recovered mine, but you might want to check that.

    Take care.

    • Ann Christy says:

      It does that sometimes, even to stuff I sign up for. Luckily, Gmail learns what you like so if you mark it as “not spam” then next time, it is more likely to put it in your inbox. I sure wish I knew how many that happened to. Since I run a ‘verified’ campaign via MailChimp, it’s not supposed to happen, but nothing is perfect. Thanks for telling me! Have a great day!

  • Hi Ann,

    Can I interest you in participating in 31 Zombie Authors on bookshelfbattle.com ?

  • Craig Valentine says:

    I just read Deep Dark and was wowed. I did not realize that by happenstance I had jumped into the middle of the series. The foreboding that our whole species is on the other edge of extinction is pervasive

  • Ken says:

    Really pleased to get another Perfect Partners book today, since I just finished reading the series back to back after discovering it in the Robot Chronicles. Excellent plots and all so different. I think Dogcatcher was my favorite.

    In addition to just being darn good stories, the observations on human emotions continually give you pause.

    Keep up the great writing. I loved the Silo 49 series and Strikers. Excited that another Strikers will be coming soon. Also looking forward to Lulu.

    Hopefully you keep at the PePrs stories.

    • Ann Christy says:

      I’ll keep writing them as they come to me (and I can squeeze them in). I sure do love writing in that world. Thank you so much for reading and I’m thrilled to hear you’re enjoying them! Ann

  • Patsy Hennessey says:

    I was recently introduced to your work by a free copy of In Betweener, and have been gorging on your work since. Your books are so compelling, they take me out of myself. I have multiple autoimmune and neurological disorders; finding great stories to lose myself in is the best of serendipity.

    Thank you so very much for the hours of pleasure I’ve had with your creations so far, and in the future.

    • Ann Christy says:

      Thank you for reading and I’m thrilled to hear that they can take you away. I love it when books do that to me, and the best thing an author can hear is that something they’ve written does the same to someone else. I’ll keep doing my best to write well!

  • John Pappas says:

    Ann, just read your scammers post. Spooky. Have you sent this to Amazon? I’m ready to send them a copy unless you think there’s a reason it could damage you. Please advise.

    • Ann Christy says:

      Sadly, I’m not well-known enough to have a POC inside Amazon, but I’m pretty sure they know about it. They appear to be doing something about some of the scams now all the sudden, so I really appreciate all those shares and news articles!

  • Scott Giese says:

    I’ve tried to find you on facebook, but there seem to be more than one of you. I have not been able to decide which of you to friend. Do you have any hints?

    • Ann Christy says:

      Author Ann Christy is the one with the formal picture and that’s the fan page to “like.” The friend me is Ann Christy and I’m making a goofy face and wearing a blue shirt. 🙂 Facebook Ann

  • Hello Ann,
    I’m working on a series of my own, with the first book , “The Falcon Flies Alone” coming out in August with Five Directions Press, a small, quality-focused publishing co-op. I like to connect with, and read, other Indie authors in the fantasy/dystopian genre. Your books and website looked interesting.
    Are you an Indie writer?
    Warm regards,
    Gabrielle Mathieu

  • Doug says:

    Fellow (former) naval officer here! Stumbled on your site from Amazon – love the Silo series, so i may take a look at your interpretation of this world. Where did you get your commission?

  • So, I had planned to spend the last couple of days marketing my own books (sales have been a little slow lately) but I opened “Eastlands” and, yeah, got hooked on the continuing story of Karas Quick and her friends… The end result: No marketing but, what the heck, I was probably never going to get rich writing books anyway 🙂 Great story Ann, I’ll post reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, etc. Can’t wait for the third book in the trilogy…

  • Somesh rao says:

    Ann, just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the Silo 49 series. When I saw a free Ann Christy book “In Betweeners”, I got it and loved it.

    How about some more hard-core sci-fi? Maybe military sci-fi with your naval background.



    • Ann Christy says:

      I did a military sci-fi piece set in the Between Life and Death world for Dark Discoveries magazine. I liked it and am thinking of more in the future. For Summer 2017, I’ll be releasing an entire trilogy…set in space!

  • Roberta Jean Vengley says:

    Thank you for the Cottage of Hunger. It was a good way to wake up. You had me guessing all the way through. You are phenomenal as is your writing. Thank you, Again.

  • Greg says:

    Just read the sample of Cottage of Hunger. I’m hooked. I’ll now have to find your other books and load up.
    Refreshingly written.

    • Ann Christy says:

      So glad you liked it! That’s the whole story right there. I was working on creating an entire world with as few words as possible. I like how it turned out. Thanks for reading!

  • Ken Bruce says:

    I really enjoy your work, and just came to the realization that I hadn’t received a newsletter in a long time. I checked my past mail and found it was since last October!

    Is there perhaps a problem with your mailing list or just no newsletters since October? I suppose I could just re-sign up, but would rather not have my name down twice if it’s already there. I like subscribing to newsletters from all my authors so I know when a new book is released, and also sometimes to take advantage of bargains on new releases.

    I see two new books of yours I haven’t read – Dark Collections Book 1 & 2. I’ll certainly be buying those two.

    • Ann Christy says:

      Nope, the mailings have definitely been going out! If you missed since October then you even missed the huge holiday giveaway this year. I’m so sorry! A lot of email services have now made it so that any email like a newsletter will go to spam or promotional folders unless the recipient is whitelisted by the user. If you haven’t put me in your contacts, do. ann [at] annchristy.com.

      Do let me know if you find my emails in your spam folder! Ann

      • Ken Bruce says:

        I checked the mail servers for spam and there was nothing there from annchristy.com, so it’s a mystery. I’ll just re-subscribe and hope for the best.

        The last newsletter I received was in October 2016 when you posted the very nice short “Cottage of Hunger”.

        Thanks for the quick response.

        • Ann Christy says:

          Wow…I have no clue then! It’s possible that something happened to you on the list, though for sure I haven’t purged anyone.

          • Ken Bruce says:

            Just a followup to this.

            I received my first newsletter today, so the re-subscription worked fine.

            Not having changed anything to cause the loss of subscription to occur, makes me wonder if it’s happened to others.


  • Ray Chartier says:

    Ann, this is Ray C from your last duty station. I finally got to read your books Yankari and Strikers while on vacation this summer. I enjoyed both. Creative, suspenseful, gripping. Thanks for the books, your service to our Navy and nation, and your zest for life.

    • Ann Christy says:

      Captain C! I’m so glad to have heard from you! Glad you liked them. Much has changed since those books (in fact, those two books are on their second, improved, editions). I even made the bestsellers lists (#14 and #4), which is more than I ever expected. It was wonderful to see a familiar name here. Best to you, Ann

  • Harry Neuhardt says:

    Let me start by thanking you for sharing your life with your country. Your veteran status is just another amazing aspect of an obviously amazing person. It was well over 60 years ago I read my first Sci-Fi, by no less accomplished author than Robert Heinlein. In all that time I have never had an urge to review a book or correspond with an author. Until now.
    I have not read the Wool series but that was no impediment. I started Silo 49: Going Dark expecting a short tale about the survival of man kind. What I got was a short tale about reasonably ordinary people who step up to the survival of humanity. A neat switch which I confess I didn’t see coming. I will most assuredly look for your name again.
    By the way, I like your art as well.

    • Ann Christy says:

      Thank you so much, Mr. Neuhardt! I’m honored. I’m also thrilled that you enjoyed Silo 49. It was my first series of books, so they hold a special place in my heart. Best regards, Ann
