Galveston resident Ann Weisgarber didn't start out wanting to be a writer. But after spending time as a social worker and a teacher, she took writing classes with Inprint, and today she's the author of three historical novels.

In her latest work, The Glovemaker, Weisgarber tells a story set in late 19th century Utah about a woman who shelters a fellow Mormon on the run from the law. Inevitably, she’s forced into a moral dilemma when the law comes knocking.

In the audio above, Houston Matters host Craig Cohen talks with Weisgarber about the book and how the Ohio native eventually found her way to Greater Houston.
