Born in England, but now living in Australia,. Annette’s writing history was unremarkable until March 2008, when a routine eye operation rendered her totally blind. Her life changed completely, and it was her penchant for crafting stories that ‘saved’ her, although at the time, she knew nothing about professional writing. From a technical standpoint, her first novel, The Dolls House, was an unmitigated disaster. However, she persevered, and has now written numerous multi-award winning novels and short stories, covering a range of topics from children’s fantasy to historical fiction.
