Hi! I’m Annie.
I grew up going to museums and watching historical movies. My dad was a history buff and we got a steady dose of it in our home. I declared I’d never watch another John Wayne western or Civil War movie again when I moved out of my dad’s house. Then I married a history lover. Oh my!
I love to write romance and have been doing that since I was in high school. I’ve come to love writing Western Christian Romance stories. I love the rugged adventures of people looking for love in the Wild West!
History is an important part of who we are as individuals and as a society. I recognize and appreciate this now! Someone asked me not long ago how I name my characters and I use history to help me. Many of the characters in my books are named after people who have been important to me in my life. For example, Viola in Don’t Fence Him In is named after my paternal grandmother and Frederick is named after my father-in-law who passed away at the end of 2014. Neither character is based on their personalities, but I used their names as a tiny tribute.
My stories are clean with a Christian thread. I won’t pound you with scriptures, but my characters – at least most of them! – are God fearing people. They trust in God to help them through life’s twists and turns.
I really hope you’ll enjoy what I write and find a little entertainment along with a little inspiration!
