Anne Allen lives in Devon, by her beloved sea. She has three children and her daughter and two grandchildren live nearby. She was born in Rugby, to an English mother and Welsh father. As a result she spent many summers with her Welsh grandparents in Anglesey and learnt to love the sea.
Her restless spirit has meant a number of moves which included Spain for a couple of years. The longest stay was in Guernsey for nearly fourteen years after falling in love with the island and the people. She contrived to leave one son behind to ensure a valid reason for frequent returns. Another son is in London which proves handy for City breaks.
By profession Anne Allen was a psychotherapist but has long had creative ‘itches’, learning to mosaic, paint furniture, interior design and sculpt. Although she often thought about being a writer, life had always seemed to get in the way. Bringing up three children on her own didn’t make it any easier! Then, a few years ago, she won a true-life story competition run by Prima magazine, which was featured in a two-page spread when published. A real boost to her writer’s ego!
Anne has now published six books in The Guernsey Novels series and her seventh novel later will be published later in the year.
“Inspiration is wonderful when it happens, but the writer must develop an approach for the rest
of the time… The wait is simply too long.”
