Ann Hood is firmly rooted in the physical world--practical, realistic, and skeptical about many things in life at the cusp of the second millennium. But despite these traits, she traveled all the way from Rhode Island to El Santuario de Chimayo in New Mexico with her newborn daughter, believing she could bring home a miracle for her dying father. Ultimately, Ann Hood discovered the courage to accept what had come her way, and an appreciation for the faith in miracles held by millions around the world.
Ann Hood is the author of six novels, including Ruby and Somewhere Off the Coast of Maine (both from Picador). She now lives in Providence, Rhode Island with her husband and two children

"Do Not Go Gentle is a lively, gracefully written memoir, full of vivid descriptions of the beautiful places in which people have experienced miracles."
"[Ann Hood] creates an entire world of belief and tradition that sustains her . . . the miracle that truly nurtures her is her art."—Providence Journal
