About this author

Anne Elisabeth Stengl makes her home in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she lives with her husband, Rohan, a passel of cats, and one long-suffering dog. When she's not writing, she enjoys Shakespeare, opera, and tea, and studies piano, painting, and pastry baking. She studied illustration at Grace College and English literature at Campbell University. She is the author of the TALES OF GOLDSTONE WOOD, which currently includes seven novels and one novella, with a new novella and a new novel both due to release in 2015. Her novels HEARTLESS, VEILED ROSE, and DRAGONWITCH have each been honored with a Christy Award, and STARFLOWER was voted winner of the 2013 Clive Staples Award.

“I'll never tell you to stop loving. You see, I believe in hopeless love. Oh yes. I believe in it with all my heart, though you may discount the heart of an old nanny like me. For real love brings pain. Real love means sacrifices and hurts and all the thousand shocks of life. But it also means beauty, true beauty.”
Anne Elisabeth Stengl, Moonblood

“If a man has to ask for your trust, it's a sure sign that you should not give it. Trust should be earned inherently, without any verbal demands. Trust is knowing a man's character, knowing truth, and relying on that character and truth even when the odds seem against you.”
Anne Elisabeth Stengl, Heartless

“I could try to care, but I ain't sure it's worth the bother.”
Anne Elisabeth Stengl, Veiled Rose

Anne Stengl Hi, LadyJane!

DRAGONWITCH actually takes place a LONG time before Leo and Rose Red are even born. But I do plan to write more about both of them! Leo, in fact, has a major role in my upcoming SHADOW HAND (though Rose Red, sadly, is only mentioned a few times. You'll have to wait a little longer to see more of her!)

But I will give you an interesting little tidbit about DRAGONWITCH--You'll get to meet Rose Red's grandfather. :)

LadyJane Hi Anne!
I just finished Moonblood and I was wondering...Does Dragonwitch return to the tale of Leo and Rose Red? Or is that for another book?
Thanks heaps and God bless!

Alpha Good Evening Anne!

I want to thank you for adding me as a friend. Right now, I am reading your first novel Heartless and thus far, I am really enjoying. I hope to buy all your paperbacks in one purchase since I love owning hard copies.

Feel free to message me back anytime. I love building bridges and getting to know my friends more. I hope you have a great rest of the work week.

May God Grant You a Blessed Day!
Alpha OUT!
