I'm Anne Greene and I'm new to Writers' Rest and I'll be posting most Fridays.

I'm a published author and I'll be using this day of the blog to answer the writing questions you send in. For instance, you might ask me -How do I find an agent? Then I'll use the Friday blog to answer. From time to time I'll initiate other timely topics.

Today, I'll tell you a little about myself. I write historical novels, historical romance novels, and suspense novels - both historical and contemporary. I live in McKinney, Texas, just north of Dallas and packers are filling boxes of my clothes and personal items to be sent to South Korea. Yep, my husband is a Colonel in the US Army and has been stationed to that country for the next two years. I'll keep the home fires burning and visit him from time to time. While in Korea I hope to take jaunts to Thailand, China, Japan, and Australia.

I'm a world traveler. I've visited England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Italy, Germany, Spain, Turkey, Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, Guatemala, France, Lichtenstein, Austria, the American Virgin Islands, and sailed the British Virgin Islands. Yes, I crewed the sailboat that my husband captained. Now, it's on to Asia for us. A number of my books do have foreign settings. So, if you have writing questions about other countries, I may be able to answer them.

I'm a four-time mother, but don't expect me to answer any of those thorny questions about parenting. My children all turned out to be outstanding, but it's much more thanks to God than to any expertise I might have. I love writing about relationships because many times I find puzzling answers to the whys in my own life as my characters live out their lives.

I could write an entire post on how I met the Lord when I was twenty-one, but you can read some of the experience on my website at

So, now that you know me a little, feel free to ask those pesky writing questions that need answered!

What a great background you have for writing. Wish I had known you sooner. I just finished the sequel to Sanctuary, and it took place in Scotland and England, and the book ended in South Carolina in 1760.
Maybe next time.
