Award-winning Melbourne writer Anne Gracie spent her childhood on the move. The gypsy life taught her that humour and love are universal languages and that favorite books can take you home, wherever you are.
A lifelong bookworm, Anne began writing her first novel while backpacking solo around the world. She's now a full-time writer working on her 23rd book. A nationally bestselling author in the USA (published with PenguinRandom House) her historical romances have been translated into more than eighteen languages.
Anne has conducted writing workshops for most Australian state writers’ centres, many tertiary institutions, and has delivered keynotes and workshops in the US, Australia and NZ. Her book,The Autumn Bride, has been on the curriculum of several Australian universities.
Not Just Costumes & Carriages
Historical novels are not lightly disguised history lessons; they're about characters and conflict and, if done well, they plunge readers into another world, with all the excitement and uncertainty and richness and drama of the unexpected. Mine the past for stories and, in your own special way, bring them to life for today's readers.
