Anne Rouen is a multi-award winning historical fiction author whose writing is inspired by the opulent operatic era of 19th century France. This passion was ignited from delving into her own French heritage, and a lifelong love of historical fiction writing of a similar ilk to Georgette Heyer. And so, inspiration for Master of Illusion and its ongoing series was born.
Anne Rouen is the alter ego of Lynn Newberry: a country woman from the New South Wales New England region of Australia, who breeds Brangus cattle by day and is a dedicated, passionate horsewoman.
The lady behind Anne Rouen has completed a specialist teaching degree in the Rural Sciences department of the University of New England, and has spent most of her years involved in the agricultural industry—twenty of them as an educator.
Throughout her career, Lynn has escaped the everyday demands of work through the hand of Anne Rouen. Master of Illusion—Book One was her first published novel and was the Silver Medal winner in the Global Ebook Awards (2014) for Historical Literary Fiction. Her third novel, Angel of Song, won the Bronze Medal for Modern Historical Literature Fiction in the 2016 Global Ebook Awards.
Lynn has also seen success with her short story writing, achieving a Highly Commended in the Rolf Boldrewood Literary Awards (2011) for ‘The Scent of a Criminal’.
