About Anne Spackman

At the current time, I am a gymnastics coach and a writer of many types of fiction. I have a BA in English language and literature from The University of Chicago. I am half-American and half-Scottish. I spent many summers as a girl in Scotland, and moved to England at 16 where I finished high school at Bedford High School.

My first novel, The Last Immortal, I wrote more than twenty years ago. It is the first of six novels in the "Seeds of a Fallen Empire" series that was finished in 2000 and finally published for kindle in 2010-2014 after many years of trying the traditional publishing route. I have also written one fantasy novel, Curse of the Dragon Kings, which was written in 1997 and self-published in 2010.

My other interests are gymnastics, ballet, and hiking. I trained in gymnastics for 9 years intensively and am still bouncing around on trampolines from time to time. I teach gymnastics and love the sport very much. I also love ballet and have trained off and on in ballet. My childhoods in Scotland in the summers instilled a deep love of nature and history in my spirit as well. As a writer, I started out writing mostly science fiction and also fantasy as I so much loved J.R.R. Tolkien as a girl. I also really enjoy historical fiction set in the days of ancient Rome, (and Egypt.) I am now writing more romantic and historical short stories.

As a reader, I enjoy reading English literature, literary fiction, historical fiction, Russian literature, fantasy on occasion, selective science fiction, and good writing in any genre. I also like to read books on political science, international relations, foreign policy, geography, astronomy, and ancient history (Egypt, Sumeria, Rome, Greece).

Another interest I have is in foreign languages and cultures. I have traveled to many countries in Europe, and learned French, German, Russian, and Japanese at University. My German speaking ability has waned, but I still enjoy watching foreign films and trying to read French and Russian.

Why don't you describe George too snobbish to be a home-boy grasshopper. Ever since little human let him alive, he deemed that all human race fear him, and he didn't chirp no more 'cause that was for pussy and he should do better then one day he learned his lesson by challenging some hungry birds...
