Anne was born in Scotland but brought up in South Africa. After she left school she returned to the birthplace of her parents, the remote Western Islands of Scotland. She left there to train as a nurse before going on to university to study English literature. After the birth of her first child, she and her doctor husband traveled the world working in rural Africa, Australia and Northern Canada.
Anne worked in the health sector until very recently, laterally as a manager of an IVF unit, so she has no shortage of medical scenes for her books. In addition, she blatantly picks her husband’s brain to ensure the medical detail is correct and up to date. And if he can’t help, he usually manages to find a colleague who can.
She still loves to travel and grabs any opportunity to see new places, incorporating the most romantic locations into her books. To relax, she enjoys playing tennis, yoga, walking and, of course, reading.
