About Anne

Anne lives in Sydney with her husband and her two young children.

She has taught dance, been an entertainer at children’s parties, and she reads and teaches art and craft to children. She paints children’s canvasses and makes greeting cards.

Anne has been encouraged to share her story-telling, her illustrations and her creativity resulting in her Ori the Octopus series. The first book Ori the Octopus is closely followed by Ori’s Christmas, both released in 2017. 

Anne is a member of the Children’s Book Council (cbca), the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and the Australian Society of Authors (asa). She attends seminars regularly to keep her up to date in all sorts of skills and areas such as writing, illustrating, the book industry and story telling with the Story Tellers Guild!

 She hopes you enjoy her books, events and all the free activities on her website.
