Born in 1940, Anne spent her formative years between Madoc township and Ottawa. Her love of writing was first nurtured during her high school years in Ottawa. She went on to receive her Registered Nursing Diploma with a focus on psychiatry, practicing in California, Colorado and Ottawa. She later completed her Bachelor of Music High Honours from Carleton University, spending a number of years teaching piano. Anne's award-winning short-story memoire, The Night My Father Came Home from the War, inspired her debut novel, A Marginally Noted Man. Her writing displays an acute understanding of the warfare experience.
