Anna is a full time writer now, living in the Nottinghamshire countryside with her husband, David, and the benevolent tyrant of the house, Molly the cockapoo. For many years Anna worked for the UK government, but jumped ship a few years ago to focus on her main interest: combining her love of science fiction with gay lit. There’s nothing better than handsome heroes running about shooting lasers, saving the planet and getting into passionate scrapes with equally handsome space pilots. Or good-looking Victorian Aegyptologists getting entangled with gorgeous coffeehouse owners in a steampunk version of London. When she isn’t writing, she thinks about doing the odd bit of gardening, but that never lasts long—Pinterest, and building up the biggest collection of tiara images on the web, is far more alluring.
