Profile: Anne Thomas

About This Author

Anne lives in south Somerset where she enjoys a life filled with opportunities to meet people, visit beautiful places, paint, read, bake cakes, and write. Married to a clergyman, Anne's writing has had to take second place to a great many other things, but John's story had to be told - so 'At A Stroke' was born. Other published work includes a short story: 'The Power of Nurse Rooke' in a Chawton House anthology 'Beguiling Miss Bennet'; another short story 'Mrs Dean's Dilemma' reached 1st place in a BBC competition & was broadcast as a Morning Story. Other works, including illustrated children's books, remain unpublished, but Anne's next project - about the artist who painted John's portraits, is already under way.
