Ann-Margret Hovsepian is an award-winning writer, editor, and illustrator from Montreal, Quebec. She has had more than 300 articles featured in a variety of Canadian and U.S. print publications. Her first devotional for tween girls, The One Year Designer Genes Devo, was released by Tyndale House Publishers in 2007. She is also the author of Truth & Dare: One Year of Dynamic Devotions for Girls (David C. Cook Publishing, 2011) and Truth, Dare, Double Dare: Another Year of Dynamic Devotions for Girls (Cook, 2014), and she was the lead author and senior editor of Blossom, a tween BibleZine (Thomas Nelson, 2006). As an illustrator, she contributed five original drawings to Whatever Is Lovely: A Coloring Book for Reflection and Worship (WaterBrook Multnomah, 2015) and created a unique devotional colouring book called Restore My Soul, released by Tyndale in April 2016. In October 2017, her fifth book, a collaboration called Inkspirations for Breast Cancer Survivors, was published; it’s a colouring book packed with all-new illustrations.
In addition to her writing and illustrating projects, Ann-Margret is involved with missions and women’s ministry and has had the opportunity to speak at several women’s events. She will be the plenary speaker at a Christian writers’ conference in Canada in September 2018.
In her spare time, Ann-Margret enjoys many (admittedly introvertive) hobbies including cooking, art journalling, calligraphy, crafting, sewing, reading and indoor gardening.
