SIDELIGHTS:

Ann Roth told CA: "I live in the greater Seattle area with my husband and a really irritating cat who expects her breakfast no later than six a.m., seven days a week.

"My advice to aspiring writers is: never give up! Keep on learning and expanding your craft. Writing is a craft. Developing that craft takes patience and open-mindedness. Nurture your dream. Be willing to listen and learn. Take chances and make mistakes. But no matter what, don't give up."
