Anna was a bookworm almost since birth and was recognized by Romance Writers of America as a PRO in 2002 & PAN in 2016.
Anna grew up in Philadelphia and graduated from Philadelphia’s University of the Arts where she majored in children’s book illustration.
She pursued a successful and versatile career in design, graphic arts, publications and public relations in Southern California before being lured to the Oregon wilderness by her desire to write and her former Navy Seal husband.
Anna’s debut novel The Songbird with Sapphire Eyes first began as a series of dreams that so haunted her they became a personal quest to explore possible past life memories. The journey was both eerie and exciting and the manuscript finaled and won second place in the Women’s Fiction category of the 2006 Tara Awards.
Anna is inspired to write about interesting characters whose lives take them on journeys we can all enjoy and perhaps learn something meaningful from.
A wife, mother and doting “nanny” of two, this former city girl and her country husband live on 45 wooded acres in one of Oregon’s enchanted forests. Their log home contains an interesting collection of Flapper and Prohibition memorabilia inspired by her first novel and an animal menagerie that includes two wolf-hybrids, a red-tailed hawk named Lucky and a feisty but lovable African grey parrot named Warlock.
