Anne Wedgwood lives in Beverley, where her stories are set. She has come to writing in her later years, having spent her working life in education.
Anne was born in London and was immersed in books from her childhood onwards. She has lived in Beverley since 2008 and has no plans to leave! Anne is married with three grown-up children and lives with her husband in an eighteenth century house in the middle of town. She still works in schools alongside her writing, and in her spare moments enjoys walking on the Westwood, visiting theatres and cinemas, cooking and keeping her garden under control, listening to her husband playing the piano throughout.
Anne's first novel, 'The Botanist' came about following an idea for a short story event in the town's local theatre. Her second book, 'The Soloist' is published by The Book Guild and reflects her interest in music - you can find out more about it through her website or at https://www.bookguild.co.uk/bookshop/book/398/the-soloist-OcIL/
Anne will be signing copies of both her books at The Beverley Bookshop on Saturday 25 March, and you can also catch up with her at the Promoting Yorkshire Authors book fair at the Huddersfield Literature Festival on Saturday 1st April at the Lawrence Batley Theatre. Anne will also be taking part in the Authors at the Armouries event in Leeds on Saturday 3rd June.
