Anne Stuart has been writing since the dawn of time, even though she’s an immature 50-something. She was born in Philadelphia just after World War II to overeducated parents, grew up in Princeton, New Jersey (back in the days when girls didn’t go to Princeton).
Her childhood was classically dysfunctional, but she managed to survive and even thrive, helped by her love of story. She read voraciously and began to write novels in fifth grade, usually involving technically impossible love scenes (back then fifth graders were innocent).
In her early 20s she lived for rock and roll and gothic romances. When there wasn’t enough of either to keep her happy she moved to Vermont to write her first romance, a gothic entitled Barrett’s Hill.
It sold to Ballantine and was published in 1974, when she was just 25 years old. In the ensuing years she’s written for almost every publisher, including Dell, Doubleday, Berkley, St. Martin’s, Pocket Books, Avon, Signet, Zebra, Fawcett, Silhouette, Harlequin, and MIRA.
She’s currently writing romantic suspense for MIRA, series romances for Harlequin American Romance, and historicals for a player to be named later.
She lives on 20 acres in a town in northern Vermont with her magnificent husband of 25 years, two wonderful teenage children (a boy and a girl), four cats, a springer spaniel, a satellite dish, seven televisions, six VCRs, a DVD player, six CD players, a Husqvarna sewing machine and serger. And she loves them all.
Not to mention the household’s five computers.
When she’s not writing she’s feeling guilty.
