About the author.
  • Anns mother died soon after she was born. She
    had to live with her aunt, uncle, and cousins.
    After a brief period of living with them, she
    went to live with her father, other siblings, and
    a stepmother.

4
  • Her family discouraged her to follow her dreams
    so she was not permitted to attend college after
    she was finished with high school. Instead, she
    became a secretary, but left that profession in
    1960 when she married Rex Rinaldi.

5
  • Ann Rinaldi is an award winning author, most
    known for her historical fiction, has authored
    over a dozen young adult novels. Ann first became
    interested in studying American history when her
    son became active in Revolutionary War
    re-enactments when he was in high school. Writing
    historical fiction has since then become a
    passion for Ann Rinaldi.

6
  • She spends a great deal of time researching the
    historical periods in which her novels take place
    to insure the accuracy of the settings and draws
    from her own life experiences to develop the
    realism of her characters. The conflicts which
    her protagonists face reflect concerns common to
    young adults, past and present.

  •   In 1960, Ann married Ron Rinaldi. She explains,
    "Ron was middle-class and sane. I wanted sanity
    after my crazy upbringing." After marrying, Ann
    left the business world and, after having two
    children, decided she wanted to be a novelist

11
  • In 1979, Ann finally finished a short story she
    had been laboring over for years. She explains,
    "My experience in the newspaper business and as a
    parent gave me so much more to bring to my
    fiction." That short story, entitled Term Paper
    became her first published novel. Term Paper.
  • Ann explains that she did not write her story for
    young adults and that only after finishing it did
    she realize that what she had written could be
    marketed as a young adult novel. Term Paper was
    bought by the first publisher who read it and was
    soon followed by its sequel, Promises are for
    Keeping.

  • Ann Rinaldi is acclaimed for her historical
    novels, of which eight have been named Best Books

    Association. Author of more than thirty titles,
    she sets the standard for the genre in excellence
    and accuracy with her modern-day classics Wolf by
    the Ears and In My Father's House.
