Ann Charney is a Montreal-based novelist, short-story writer and journalist. Ann Charney was born on April 3, 1940 in Brody/ Lwow, Poland (today Lviv, Ukraine) as the daughter of Dora Wengler Korsower and Michael Korsower.

Until the liberation of Poland by the Russians in 1945, Ann Charney’s family was forced to hide because they were Jewish. In 1950, Ann Charney and her parents immigrated to Canada.

In 1965, Charney received a master's degree in French literature from McGill University. She also studied at the Sorbonne in Paris, France.

Charney's first novel, Dobryd, was published in 1973.

Ann Charney has received grants from Canada Council and the Conseil des arts et des lettres de Québec.
