Anna was born in Essex in 1974. She loved reading from an early age, enjoying books such as the Chronicles of Narnia and Watership Down. She discovered historical fiction in her teens and this soon became a favourite genre, with 'Katherine' by Anya Seton one of her most read books.
After a completing a degree in history, Anna lived in Germany for a year before training as a teacher. She currently lives in Devon with her husband and three sons.
Anna has always enjoyed writing and has experimented over the years with various genres including thrillers, children's and science fiction. In 2015 she started work on a book inspired by her love of history and her Scots ancestry. The result was 'Kenneth's Queen', a tale of the nameless wife of Kenneth mac Alpin, his rise to power and the birth of Scotland.
Anna has fallen in love with the Dark Ages and the part played by the often unrecorded and uncelebrated women who lived through these tumultuous events. She plans to tell the story of as many as possible!
