I was born in Christchurch but grew up mostly in the North Island. My secondary education was at Papakura High School here in New Zealand, and Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School in England. I have a Bachelor of Arts in French from the University of Auckland, and a Bachelor of Laws from Victoria University of Wellington. Over the past few years, since I retired from the National Library of New Zealand, I have become passionate about writing. My other interests include swimming, walking, travel, cinema and choral singing. My blog is at: annietravelscribble.blogspot.com
