BIO


Ann is a professional writer with more than 30 years’ experience and she's passionate about creative writing.  She has successfully crafted stories and composed professional literature for every type of client; from actors/comedians/athletes to politicians to CEO's.  She has fulfilled a vast range of commissions, including: books, speeches, ads, newsletters, brochures, promotional materials, web content, sales proposals, training manuals, company policy handbooks, speaker introductions, event programs, logistics, contracts, banquet orders, referrals, menus, and invitations.

Ann’s passion as a writer includes screenwriting and she went back to school to enhance her mastery of the art of creative writing and film in particular.  The Power of Dreams, Scent of a Trail, Dream Catcher, and The Writer’s Block are but a few of Ann’s scripts currently in development.  She’s also penned articles, interviews, and book reviews in the arena of filmmaking and screenwriting.

An author of both fiction and non-fiction, Ann’s currently at work on The Art of Observation.  She has a longstanding love for a surprising variety of genres, including mysteries and thrillers, spiritual and inspiration, supernatural and paranormal, adventure and drama, romantic comedy and family/children, as well as animation. She’s an active member of several writing communities and always gives back to her peers and mentees with an abundance of generosity and enthusiasm.

Additionally, Ann worked in the hospitality and entertainment industries as a Special Event Coordinator and Manager for over 30 years, before becoming a writer full-time. Her responsibilities included sales and marketing, event coordination/planning, managing, public relations, publicity, networking, and a large portion of her time was spent writing (marketing materials, press releases, sales proposals, event contracts, website content, newsletters, speeches, & more).

Ann has been an instrumental part in the promotion of my two books. She has a gift and a flair for the creative process. She knows how to get to the heart of what matters. I highly recommend her for your creative writing needs.

Excellence. That one word describes Ann’s talent and all that she writes. She’s also possessed of genuine enthusiasm and passion, which adds immeasurably to every collaboration. Ann’s been a hugely valuable asset, always promoting my book, seminars, and The Master Course. I recommend Ann if you have creative writing needs.

Ann is an attentive listener and a smart and dedicated writer, one who really understands your needs and goals and delivers above and beyond your expectations. Collaborating with her on interviews has been a pleasure — satisfying, rewarding and great fun. I look forward to working with her again.

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Ann who asked insightful and thought-provoking questions. She knows how to bring out the best in people and what they do to not only capture the attention of her audience, but inform them of the subject matter in an interesting way. She was a delight to work with and made me feel at ease. I look forward to working with Ann again and highly recommend her.

The behind the scenes of making my book look good (you know…spelling, grammar, editing and proofreading) was expertly handled by one special lady, Ann Baldwin. Ann stepped in when I had a tight deadline to meet and was simply wonderful to work with. She pulled some late hours during the holidays to make it happen and viewed me and my work as a real thing, not just a job. No hesitation in recommending her---she's a jewel!!!

I've had the pleasure of being interviewed by Ann Baldwin and have used her writing and editing skills in putting together a course syllabus on my book –

It was absorbing and great fun being the subject of an interview with Ann on her series; she is knowledgeable and supportive. She explores levels of information that are both articulate and valuable to discuss. I use the term story midwife, to describe very special people. Those with a deep empathy and a first-hand knowledge of the writing experience, who help you push through the process of birthing your creativity -- with warmth, encouragement and no dogma. As a writer of books and screenplays herself, Ann studies and engages in the creative process. She has a wonderful appreciation for what it takes to act as a guide, and she knows the paths to success in a business with few obvious sign posts. She's what savvy writers, directors, and producers look for, when creating and promoting their books and films. I recommend Ann as a heartfelt champion for your creative journey.

Ann is a wonderful, gifted, and inspiring person with great talent.

Ann was a joy to work with in the script consultation process. She really knows how to hear a note and run with it. She has a love and enthusiasm for the creative process that is reflected in her story. She has a gift.
