Author bio

My name is Anne. I'm a part-time writer and editor, plus a full-time mom. I've loved words all of my life and have worked with them in many capacities: as a journalist and newspaper editor, an author and freelance writer, a business communications writer, a musical theater performer, and now as a short story writer and book editor. I love telling stories that are approachable, authentic, and a little unexpected.

What do you need to say? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence?" -Audre Lorde “We tell ourselves stories in order to live...We look for the sermon in the suicide... We live entirely, especially if we are writers, by the imposition of a narrative line upon disparate images, by the ‘ideas’ with which we have learned to freeze the shifting phantasmagoria which is our actual experience.” - Joan Didion "A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us." -Franz Kafka
