Anna moved to the USA to marry her husband Rodney and has resided in Utah since then. Her husband, a native of Idaho, met her in her hometown. They fell in love and she came to Utah on Christmas Eve to be married two weeks later. They are the parents of three princes and a princess.
Early on in her life she showed an affinity for sewing and took classes that rewarded her with the opportunities of doing costuming for the cast of four musicals, and for Utah’s own Fantasy Con, which she enjoyed immensely. She is fluent in both English and Spanish. Anna lives in Taylorsville Utah.

Now for some fun Author interview Questions!

1-    What other hobbies do you enjoy when you are not writing?
I am a professional seamstress and love costuming.  I do flower arrangements, decorations and all kind of crafts. I love camping and visiting ruins.

2-    A lot of authors I have noticed have music as a way to help with their writing. Is this something that you have used as well? If not what are some things you have used?
Not really. I love music, but if it were on when I am writing I would be singing along which distracts from my writing. However, I once watched “Aida”, a live musical, and the ending bothered me so much that I went home and gave it a different ending. When the morning come I had work out a different story and my book A Kingdom by the sea came to life. This is the second book in my Royal Romance Series. Aida inspired it, but it has little to do with it. It will be published in 2016
Snippet Time!

On the last night I had with Father, all of the sudden, he had acted possessed and cried out words that seemed like a prayer. All I remember was the look in his eyes, like a paralyzed deer frozen by lantern light. Just like the trapped animal, it seemed Father knew deep in his heart that he needed to run, yet his feet didn’t move.In another moment, he shoved me inside the trunk of a tree. A tree? It has to be a bad dream. Who has ever heard of a person, small or big, melting into a full-grown tree trunk? I haven’t, yet, that’s what happened to me. It was like being under water, except I could breathe but I couldn’t really move. 
No matter how I tried. I couldn’t call out to Father. Whatever happened there, or I thought happened, my voice had left me. With what seemed like seconds to spare, he turned slowly to face what appeared to be black smoke that rushed toward him from the darkest part of the forest. I watched impotently as the dark vapor sent flashes of smoke toward his chest. With the scant knowledge of my twelve years, I still knew that whatever that smoke was, it wasn’t good. All my suspicions became real when Father’s body started to contort unnaturally every which way. I was right; he was under attack. Why? Who was our enemy? Why did they mean harm to my family?
