Anna Louise Lucia

Anna Louise Lucia lives on the edge of the English Lake District with her husband and four demanding cats. With castles, mountains, stone circles, ancient woodlands, Roman roads, high moors, mirrored lakes and sweet, clear rivers on her doorstep, it’s hardly surprising that landscapes play an important part in Anna’s books.

After completing a degree in Wildlife and Landscape Conservation, Anna came to live by the Lake District in 1996. Working for a charity helping rural communities to manage local projects doesn’t leave much time for writing, but early mornings, late nights and long lunch breaks all help keep the words coming.

Anna has been making up stories for as long as she can remember, but first sat down to write a novel in 2001. She rewrote it in 2002. And 2005. And 2006. In between rewrites, she wrote three other books, but the first one just wouldn’t go away.

She loves to write stories where ordinary people do extraordinary things, where they experience wild adventures and face up to risk, temptation and death. After all, love is dangerous.
