More About the Author

Anne Schroeder describes herself as a calorically-challenged Aphrodite with an unmistakable fervor for life. Second of seven children, she was born in Ventura County, California, the subject of her first memoir, BRANCHES ON THE CONEJO: Leaving the Soil after Five Generations.

In 1971 she graduated from Cal Poly, SLO, with a degree in Social Science, a husband, toddler and part-time job, in the first wave of the Social and Sexual Revolution. Her memoir ORDINARY APHRODITE is an adventure tale about a life of small steps in the Boomer women's experience. Her fiction and memoir have won numerous awards.

She is active in Women Writing the West and Western Writers of America. Her Central Coast Series features well researched, character-driven novels about the history of Central California in the Mission California era. CHOLAMA MOON is the first in the series, a western romance with gritty attitude.

In this era of publishing it is hard for a writer to distinguish herself from the herd. I so appreciate my reader/fans and their valuable input. I strive to be an inspirational voice for people of the land, both modern and historical. For me, the joy in writing comes from finding forgotten research books. I love combining facts with storytelling to create an unforgettable saga.

Format: Paperback
I loved Valerie J. Brooks' piece called Dead Children! From the very first sentence, it is clear what lengths the main character will go to for family. The author explores delicate yet complicated family relationships and the chore of caring for elderly parents, especially for so many who do it without a word of complaint or the help of step-up-to-the-plate relatives or siblings. With grace, the author interweaves the web and intricacy of familial interactions (and games) with the dream of dead children while alluding to the dead children in all of us. A beautiful piece by a talented writer.
