Ann Rearden grew up in a Royal Canadian Air Force family that migrated among the provinces of Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Manitoba and Quebec. After graduating from medical school at McGill University in Montreal, she immigrated to the United States and later became the first woman in her department at the University of California San Diego to be tenured as a Professor. She has an extensive record of scientific publications, is the inventor on two biotechnology patents, and has been listed in “Who’s Who in America” and “Who’s Who of American Women.”
Having accomplished what she set out to do in science and medicine, Ann has embarked on a second chapter in her life, one that revolves around her wonderful family, and freedom. She lives with her husband in Rancho Santa Fe, California. “Guess What She Did” is her debut novel.
