Born in Winchester (UK) Anna rejected faith until her own family went through the trauma of an eviction and homelessness in the 1980s. It was through these events that she found God again. Since then she’s been involved in Baptist, Anglican and Free churches, she’s now in the Anglican Church in Austria. However, she says she is just a Christian who happened to be in these churches and wouldn’t wish to be labelled!
Married for 30 years, she has two adult children who wouldn’t move to Austria when she moved there in 2007. Maybe a victim of watching too many editions of A place in the Sun and Grand Designs, she loves Austria and has no plans to leave!
Tom is set in the New Forest where Anna lived in the 1980s and in many ways reflects her life there. Following writing Tom, she took a degree with the Open University, graduating with a First Class honours in English and History. Anna worked for five years at the Fortune Centre in Hampshire as a Riding Therapist and is now extending this work in Austria into Equine Assisted therapy.
Anna also writes an Award nominated blog about Austria which tells of rich experiences of life in a new country, which is also available on Kindle!
