As a marketing and communication specialist, Anna Hutton-North has been writing all of her life.
As the winner of the Bauer Media short story at the age of 14, she has since regularly contributed articles to newspapers and trade press journals. She has also recently won The Stirling Cup awarded by HFWI. Her debut novel was "Shop Talk" and was the first in the Drayton Beauchamp series. There are three other novels set within the village, "Rural Affairs", "Puppy Love Tales" and "Finding Mr Write".
Her first children's story "Tallulah the Terrible" is aimed at 2-5 year olds and has illustrations by Alan Payne.
Her most recent book is "Ferguson's Gang - The Maidens behind the Masks" which is the first book to give the history of this notorious gang of society women who dedicated their lives to helping the National Trust save our glorious heritage.
Anna lives in an idyllic Hertfordshire village with her family and an array of constantly visiting pets.
