Southborough’s Ann Port knows professional baseball (husband Mike has worked in the sport for more than 40 years), and with a passion for travel, she knows Europe. In her first novel, It’s All In The Title, Port combines the two to weave a tale of mystery, romance, and humor.
A Georgia native raised in Arizona, Ann moved to Southborough in 1992 when her husband accepted a job as Vice President of Baseball Operations for the Red Sox. With her husband on the road much of the time, Ann – an English teacher – turned to writing to keep busy.
Keep busy she did, writing six novels as well as chairing committees that published two community cookbooks, one for St. Mark’s Church and another for the Southborough Gardeners. Each of her novels combine mystery and romance set in the European destinations she loves so much.
It’s All In The Title is the first of her six novels to be published. It tells the tale of Carolyn Charlotte Cleveland, or CC, president of the fictional Indianapolis Knights baseball team. After inheriting an English title and an enormous sum of money from a father she has never met, CC travels to England and eventually Scotland to unravel the mystery of her father’s life and death.
Ann’s book is available on Amazon.com. She will also hold a book signing event at Tatnuck Bookseller in Westborough on Saturday, September 10 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
