Far off places and fantasy worlds are available in the pages of a book.  Words can be seductive or inspirational.  They can make you laugh or cry.  You may even tumble headlong into a book where you can fall in love or fight demons–all in the comfort of your own environment.
Humor is a mainstay of my life, and I express that through my books.  So when you're feeling blue, turn that frown upside down. 
                    Laughter is the sunshine of the soul,

 "Ann DeFee makes me laugh.  Her sexy, sassy books are surefire winners."
         New York Times bestselling author

Back Cover

Springen O'Flaherty has the ability to see auras.  As a child she lived in a Popsicle world where the  kids were swathed in brilliant colors and the grown-ups were a fuzzy pastel.  Later, her psychic powers multiplied and resulted in a life of secrets and half-truths–of otherworldly sights and experiences.  Spring was resigned to the status quo until she met Jed Collinsworth.  Now she wants that two-kids and a mini-van life, but to accomplish her goal she has to be honest with the man she loves.  But first she has to come to terms with her unique abilities.               

The sudden loss of her dad plays havoc with Spring's well-laid plans.  Ready or not, Jed is about to be introduced to the O'Flaherty clan of western Virginia with all their eccentricities and quirks–tent revival preachers, gospel musicians, healers, heroes, and pot growers.  When faced with the truth will Jed help Spring discover the elusive sense of peace and acceptance that she's always wanted?  And can she repair her relationship with God?

Believeis the first book using my new pseudonym, Annaliese Darr.  It's also my initial venture into writing magical realism—a genre in which the improbable becomes the possible and the magical enhances realism.  Believe is the start of a trilogy featuring the three O'Flaherty sisters.  It was also one of those stories that headed off in a direction that I didn't anticipate. 
Believe explores the struggle of a woman with otherworldly abilities who seeks a life with the man she loves, while also repairing her relationship with God.
