Anne first conceived the possibility of writing a series of novels as a child. Her copy of Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables, and indeed all of Montgomery's works became Anne's treasured friends. The author's first novel, Lavender Village, is set in East Sussex and is a tribute to her English ancestry - the Howards. On a trip to the island of Skye, set in the Hebrides, she thought it fitting to write another novel The Mists of Afar, in remembrance of her Graham and Bruce lineage. Skye immediately captured Anne's imagination with its soaring emerald green mountains and nestling mists. It was a place like no other, as were the turquoise Faery Pools all but hidden in the lush landscape. When she came upon the charming Faery Bridge, she simply had to incorporate this into her writing. A clan of proud and loving faeries and elves sprang into being and with them a heroine, Felania, sulking over her sorry lot. It is the Croftonians' quest to transform her into a caring individual, if, and only if, Felania can find the grace within herself to open her heart to love.
Anne feels a kinship with all things British, including English mysteries. She also enjoys Victorian poetry and literature, both English and French. Her university major was French literature spanning the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries. Anne spent many years in the antiques business and loves travelling to England. Anne and her husband Graham like walking on the beach near their home in Vancouver with two much-loved border terriers, Ivy and Arthur.
