A. E. Pennymaker has been writing seriously since the age of twelve, and studied English and Secondary Education in college. (When the earth was young.)
She has also won awards for her artwork. (This doesn't have much to do with writing, but it explains her obsession with world building.)
Anna currently resides in Virginia, USA, with five children, a forest of assorted houseplants, and her husband. (Not necessarily in that order.)
She enjoys: adventuring through the countryside; soundtracks, classical music and a random selection of rock; anything coffee related; tea; and doing the laundry. (Also, sarcasm.)
You can find her on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AEPennymaker/
or on Instagram at: https://https://www.instagram.com/a.e.pennymaker/.
She also has free rough drafts of some of her WIPs on Wattpad, which she uses as a gigantic Petri dish/munitions testing ground: https://www.wattpad.com/user/AEPennymaker.
We’ll start easy. Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. It was about a mouse named Cheddar, and was basically a Martin Jacques fanfic.
So give me some setting. Describe your desk.
Ok... It’s my old drafting table, reclined flat. My iMac is sitting smack in the center, and there’s a pile of random paperwork off to the side that I can never quite get clear of. On the other side is a cup holder stuffed with paper clips, permanent markers and assorted junk. The little bronze lizard I found in my grandparents’ basement is coiled up above my mouse pad. There’s stuff from my kids everywhere too. Pictures they drew, crafts they made, ‘pretty’ rocks they brought in.

Brenorra Warring thinks her father is going crazy following the loss of their shipping business in a fire. But is he? What are the papers in his luggage? And why are both a Coalition Navy Captain AND a notorious pirate hunting for him?
