About Anya

Most of my professional career has been spent writing and editing for daily newspapers — including writing a nationally syndicated food column.


Teaching became a second career. During that time I guided students through NaNoWriMo and took a stab at starting a children’s novel (a project that's been sitting on the shelf for a few years) before moving into romance writing. I'm a member of the Romance Writers of America and love to meet other writers at the group's national conferences. I occasionally edit romance novels for other authors.

I call Massachusetts home, and have lived in Arizona, Southern California and Oregon. Married and the mother of two, I love to travel to exotic, romantic locales where I enjoy sitting in the sun and getting my tan on, reading, scuba diving or skiing (snow), as well as trying great restaurants, cooking good food, drinking great wine and sight-seeing.
