Hello, I’m Anne. I’m originally from the north-east, but I sort of slid down the map, ending up in a tiny village near Bath, where I live with my partner and our three sons.
I’m the author of The Space Between the Stars, published in 2016 by Pan Macmillan in the UK and Random House in the US, and The Theatre of Glass and Shadows, which will be published by Bonnier in May 2024.
I started writing seriously in 2011, after many years working as a criminal lawyer. This was slightly unfortunate timing, given that I was right in the middle of moving from London to Somerset with my family, who thought that a little less novel-writing and a little more packing might be a good idea. They probably had a point.
Nevertheless, I persisted, and, since then, my writing has appeared in various newspapers, magazines and anthologies, and has won several awards.
I have an MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University, and I enjoy working with other writers through teaching, editing and mentoring.
You can contact me via this website, or through my agent, Laura Williams at Greene and Heaton.
