She's a Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award winner, won Cataromance.com's reviewers choice award for the last two years, and has been a finalist in such contests as the Maggie Award of Excellence, the National Readers Choice awards, the Holt Medalian, and the Book Buyers Best Award.
Anna graduated from Georgia Tech with Highest Honors, worked in corporate IT for ten years, and had finally settled into a career as a Senior Tech Writer when her dream to publish fiction refused to be ignored a moment longer. She published five years later, and is now working on her seventh full-length novel.
One of her favorite discoveries after publishing is the excitement of traveling to speak with others about the writing process and the business of publishing. Her motivational workshops on planning, drafting and revising manuscripts attract standing room only crowds wherever she speaks, including at the 2005 RWA National Conference, where her workshops made the list of top 24 most-requested audio tracks. They're now available for purchase through the RWA website.
Anna's a busy wife and mother, but as time allows she still indulges in one of her other passions, teaching and working with crisis care groups that provide services to adults and children recovering from grief and loss.
In 2007, Anna embarks on a new journey, as president of Georgia Romance Writers, where she's excited to be able to serve the chapter that's nurtured her, and to help other authors achieve their writing dreams.
She's also an avid tennis player (there's not as much time for tennis any more, but she's determined to keep at it), so keep an eye out on the clay courts near you. You might just catch a glimpse of her hitting a wicked overhead.
And she loves to hear from readers and writers alike, so drop her a letter or an email.
