Anne began her journey as an author in 2008 with the publication of her first book Their Cancer – Your Journey – a book to support anyone affected by a friend or family member’s cancer, which drew on her own experiences of losing her mother to the disease.
Anne’s experience of self-publishing her first book, and her work with other writers through the Charmouth Literary Festival (an event to support writers and would-be writers) led to a desire to encourage others to take the step from ‘writer’ to ‘author’. Her latest book, Be An Author, was the result.
Anne is now well and truly bitten by the writing bug and is currently working on two future projects – one non-fiction and also her first novel.
You can find Anne online at her blog Anne Orchard Writer (www.anneorchard.co.uk) where she shares insights for writers, book extracts and reflections on life.
