Anna Cleary was born in Newcastle, Australia. She had the good fortune of growing up in a household where there were lots of kids, books and music. Inspired by her passion for reading, Anna loved writing poems and stories from an early age and dreamed of being an author and living in a cottage by the sea. As a teenager she adored Georgette Heyer’s regency romances. In addition to delving into the world of literature with the works of Dostoyevsky and Lawrence, she wasn’t above curling up on the bed with Wodehouse’s hilarious Wooster chronicles, or sneaking behind the garden shed to engage with the gorgeously sensuous adventures of Sergeanne Golon’s Angelique.
Anna earned an education degree in Queensland. When a friend suggested they make a pact to each start writing a romance, Anna accepted the challenge. She was hooked from her very first line. Anna’s first published novel, My Tall, Dark, Greek Boss, explores the dilemma of a woman who longs to exchange her lovely, successful career for the joys and trials of motherhood. Anna now lives in southern Queensland and besides books, she loves music, movies, meeting friends, holidays, dining out, trees, gardens and animals.
