About Me

Anna is a technical writer by day and a romance author by night.

Her first inspirations were Roald Dahl, Enid Blyton and Jacqueline Wilson. The first romance to make her heart ache was between Will and Lyra in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials.

She spent her teenage years doing more reading than writing, and turned her attention from the arts to science. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in animal behavioral science, she worked at a cow sanctuary in Hertfordshire, England, where she found her niche writing the blog and a quarterly newsletter.

Once she’d had enough of manure and being headbutted by one-tonne bulls (twice), she moved to a full-time writing role with a construction company and took a master’s degree.

She now lives just outside of London in Hertfordshire with a 13lb cat who manages to take up 75% of a king-size bed (and assists in the writing process by sitting on the laptop) and a bandy-legged tortoiseshell called Pepper (who is of no help whatsoever).

    LOL – birds of a feather. Love to read and glad we stumbled upon each other – looking forward to reading your blog later (no procrastinating there – still at work and actually have to do some work) thank you for reading me 🙂

    Hi Anna. What a great About page. I really enjoyed reading about your route into writing. It’s funny how so many people with science backgrounds turn to writing (me included). Being headbutted (twice) evidently helped to steer you in the right direction. Manure isn’t exactly my favourite thing, either! 🙂
