Anne Crawford was a feature writer and journalist with The Age for many years. In 2009, she left newspapers to pursue a vocation as an author, a childhood dream.
Words are her passion but Anne is also a published and exhibited photographer. She researched a documentary on the historic 1994 elections in South Africa, and worked as a volunteer for the Fred Hollows Foundation in Nepal in 2002, contributing to a 10th anniversary book.
Anne lives in rural South Gippsland where she writes, walks her Red Heeler-cross, rides her precocious mare and volunteers with the CFA.
