A former student of Dan Jaffe, Ann Lewis Hamilton has sold her first novel to Sourcebooks Landmark, to be published July 2014. Expecting, about a young couple who get pregnant through IUI only to find out the fertility clinic switched sperm samples, began as a short story in Dan’s class, which Ann then turned into a novel.

“I had such a positive experience with the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program,” says Ann. “I took several classes from Dan and found him patient, kind, and extremely supportive. Even though I’ve written for film and TV, I was insecure about writing fiction and he gave me the confidence I needed.”

Congratulations, Ann! We can’t wait to read it.
