New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Ana E Ross, began reading at age 3, thanks to her aunt, Nellie, whose only gifts to her at Christmas and birthdays were books. Lots and lots of book. Consequently, her writing career began at age 10, when she started writing, directing, and producing plays for her church's Sunday School and youth groups. 

In high school, Ana experimented with love poems that were the crave among her classmates. Their praises, and the fact that her late sister, Delores, who used to send her Jive, Black Romance, and True Story magazines from St. Maarten, prompted her to leave Sunday School plays in the dust, and try her hand at romance. By the time she was sixteen, she’d read every Mills & Boon, Regency, and Historical Romance novel in the library on her native island of Nevis in the West Indies.

Ana moved to the United States at age 20, and then after thirteen years of teaching Literature and Writing to middle and high school, and college students, she resigned from the classroom to follow her dream of crafting steamy, sophisticated, interracial and multicultural contemporary romance novels, featuring powerful, charming, billionaire heroes and strong, beautiful, ambitious heroines, who fight and love with equal passion. In Ana's books, Happily Ever After is the only acceptable climax.

Ana loves traveling, tennis, yoga, meditation, everything Italian, and spending valuable time with her gorgeous daughter.


Apart from its natural beauty and tranquility, Nevis, dubbed "Queen of the Caribbees" during the Colonial era-is also known as the Birthplace of American Statesman. Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton was born in 1757 in a humble house located in the capital, Charlestown. He spent his childhood playing in his yard with his brother, James, until their mother moved them to St. Croix. Hamilton was a child prodigy, whose exceptional writing skills were realized in an essay he wrote about a hurricane that destroyed Christiansted in the summer of 1772.

It is reported that the community leaders were so impressed with his writing that they rallied together and raised funds to send him to the American Colonies. In 1773, Hamilton entered King’s College in New Jersey, now known as Columbia University. His image can be found on the American $10 bill.

The HISTORY OF NEVIS is also tied to Vice Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson, an officer in the British Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars. Nelson is best known for his inspiring leadership and exceptional understanding of strategic and unprecedented war tactics. Before his death in the notable Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, Nelson had already acquired many naval victories for England.

Nevisians know Lord Nelson as the British Lord who married a native-Frances “Fanny” Nisbet, a young widow and daughter of a Nevisian plantation owner. Nelson and Nisbet exchanged vows on the island at Montpelier Estate on March 11, 1787. The marriage was recorded at the Fig Tree Church in St. John’s Parish on Nevis where the certificate has been on display ever since.
