Anne Herries is the daughter of a schoolteacher and a ladies hairdresser and, after leaving High School at fifteen, worked in her father’s shop until she married. She ran her own hairdressing salon for a while, then gave it up to write and help her husband run his antiques business.
Her first success came in 1979 when she was published by Robert Hale, writing as Lynn Granville. And success with Mills & Boon came soon after, with Devil’s Kin was published in 1981. Anne wrote 12 books for Mills & Boon before trying her hand at mainstream novels.
She has now written several books, under her own name of Linda Sole and other pseudonyms. However, Mills & Boon remains one of her favourite publishers, because of the friendly family atmosphere, and she decided to write for them again while continuing her other work. It is a busy life but fulfilling!
Writing, always a pleasure, is a dream come true for Anne. Happily married,she and her husband enjoy many many activities together. Her main interests apart from include good films and reading other authors , also walking in the sun and swimming – mostly in Spain, because it’s warmer.
Her main love, apart from her husband and writing, is for animals and birds. She loves feeding the squirrels that come regularly to her garden, as well as many varieties of birds – and even foxes during the recent bad weather.
Anne says happiness comes from enjoying the good things around us.
