Anneka was raised in Northern Virginia, in a Pre-Revolutionary log cabin. Writing was her first love and continues to be her main obsession (followed closely by Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and British Literature).
She got her BA from Randolph-Macon Woman’s College and majored in Political Science and Creative Writing with Honors. After that, she ran her own small antiques business before moving to the UK, where she got her MA in Writing for Young People from Bath Spa University. Since then, she has returned to North Virginia.
Her writing is represented by Laura Cecil.
