Growing up in Norway, Anne Michelsen developed a love of sailing and adventure. At the age of 19 she crewed on a sailing vessel crossing the Atlantic from Majorca to the Caribbean. Anne went on to walk the runways of New York and Paris before returning to Norway. While working at the Oslo Airport Anne became interested in flying and traded the runways of the fashion world for the runways to the sky.
Her flying career brought her to British Columbia on a stint as a flying instructor. Anne met her husband (a helicopter pilot/engineer) in British Columbia and together they moved to Europe, living in Ireland and Spain over the next 4 years.
Years later after returning to Canada, another opportunity to help sail a 47 foot Swan from Newport, RI to Oslo was irresistible, and a second crossing of the Atlantic was made.
Over the years, Anne decided to teach herself to touch type and at the same time improve her English vocabulary, it is in the course of this pursuit that the beginnings of a novel took form. After many iterations the final product "Summer Afternoon" was publish on Smashwords.com, just in time to welcome in the New Year of 2013.
Anne and her husband is now happily settled in the "River House" in Eastern Canada where spring and summer is greatly taken up with growing heirloom tomatoes and various other vegetables. Cooking is another passion at the River House, Anne enjoys nothing better than to make a fabulous meal, it seems to satisfy both her creative side and her palate.
Currently Anne is working on manuscripts for additional novels to be published in the near future.
