Ann Ricks, (Melissa Ann), is a Christian Fiction novelist originally from Elizabeth, NJ, now residing in Bear, Delaware with her excellent husband and two awesome sons. She is a graduate of Rider University and formerly a national accounts insurance executive.
Using Jesus Christ as her example, as He shared many parables, M. Ann creates stories with fictional characters who contend with real life issues and inserts the Word of God to communicate the genuine and unfailing love of God while making it abundantly clear that Jesus is the ONLY answer. M. Ann is determined to tell the world how wonderfully awesome Jesus Christ is and can be in our lives if we just allow Him to be. She is honored to be used by God to spread His message with the stories she creates with the leading of the Holy Spirit, knowing that He will provide her with stories and the insight as well as the words that will lift up the name of Jesus as He promised that if He is lifted up, He will draw all men to Him. Ann is also what one may consider a motivational/inspirational speaker but she prefers the term, “Godspirational” as one may only be truly inspired, transformed and receive true revelation when hearing the uncompromised word of God. Ann is the author of Awesome Wonder: The Gift of Remembrance , The Son,THE BLOOD DONE SIGNED MY NAME and her most recent release, THE SHIFT.
