Ann McCutchan's writing springs from deep interests in music, art, nature, and creativity, and the ways they shape individuals, places, and history. Her early books include a biography of French flute virtuoso Marcel Moyse and a collection of interviews with composers about the creative process -- both important contributions to the literature of music and creativity. In 2011, she published two books: a personal essay collection, Circular Breathing: Meditations From a Musical Life, and River Music: An Atchafalaya Story, an eco-biography of Louisiana musician Earl Robicheaux and the vanishing Atchafalaya River Basin he preserves and celebrates in sound. Ann is currently working on two books: Where's the Moon? a memoir of Florida during the Space Race (TAMU Press, Seventh Generation Series), and a biography of author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. In addition, she is completing Swan's Inlet, an opera libretto based on an original story, in collaboration with composer Mark Alan Taggart (2015 premiere).
