She’s had success as a professional editor and in newspaper, magazine, and technical writing, but her first love has always been writing fiction.

She is a founder, regular contributor to, and the original editor of the Timeless Romance Anthology series.

Annette is represented by Heather Karpas at ICM Partners.

Several of her newest projects, Song Breaker, Tailor Made (Book 1 in The Grand Duchy of Finland series), and The Girl in Gray, came about because of her Finnish heritage (her mother was born and raised in Helsinki) and her experiences with Finland and its people (she lived there for three years in her youth and learned to love the language and culture).
