Anna Mackenzie wrote her first book aged 6, but spent a while roaming through other jobs before returning to writing fiction. Now that she has, she can't imagine doing anything else!
Her nine titles have won her seven CLF Notable Book Awards, an NZ Post Honour Award, Sir Julius Vogel Award, White Raven, and more. Her latest title, Evie's War, tells the story of a young New Zealander who works in the medical services in the UK, Belgium and France during WWI.
Anna writes contemporary, historic and speculative fiction for adults and young adults. She lives on a farm in New Zealand.

'Donnel's Promise' is the sequel to 'Cattra's Legacy', so the characters, and to some extent the story arc, were already established.
I wrote it in a number of places - Belgium, where I had a writing residency, and in airplanes, trains and temporary abodes in England, Scotland and the US, as well as at home in New Zealand. Each place added something to the book, offering up background texture, settings, or moments of insight. (less)

I don't suffer writer's block, I suffer writer's unblock - I never seem to have enough time!
But my advice for anyone who struggles with this is to return to the beginning and edit your way through (don't just read it - hone it!). By the time you reach the sticking point, you should know where you're going next. If not, read through again, looking for a wrong turn. Don't ever be afraid to use that delete key.(less)
