Anna was born in Montreal and recently moved back there after living all over Canada and the US. She’s been a reporter, a college lecturer, a union thug and an urban shepherd, as well as other things too numerous to mention/best forgotten. She was nominated for the US Katherine Paterson YA prize and for Canada’s Arthur Ellis Award in the unpublished category. Her latest book, APRIL ON PARIS STREET (Dec 2021), is a bittersweet literary mystery that has garnered critical praise. Interested in a free book? AOPS is currently featured in a Goodreads giveaway.
