Balked of her dream of becoming Captain JANE Kirk of the Starship Enterprise, Anne kept writing while wandering through a variety of careers as engineer, diplomat, planner, and public relations specialist. Writing isn't nearly as exciting, adventurous, or sexy as commanding a starship, but it's still a challenge and, on the days when it goes well, a heck of a lot of fun. (She tries not to think about the days when it doesn't go well!) The only real problem is that, given the number of story ideas banging around in her head, Anne's either going to have to write a whole lot faster or live a whole lot longer if she's going to get all those stories written before she dies!
Anne wrote historical romance novels as Anne Avery, contemporary romance novels as Kate Holmes, and fantasy romance novels as Anne Woodard. She has been a four-time nominee for a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times Book reviews.
