Anne was born on the east coast and was raised in Portland, Oregon. She grew up finding agates and sand dollars at the beach, as well as pieces of quartz and jasper along the river banks. She has always loved the outdoors and connecting to nature is essential to her wellbeing. She is honored to be the mother of two vibrant children, both of which she gave birth to at home in Vancouver, Washington. As a mom who’s read hundreds (perhaps thousands) of books to her kids she became inspired to write one of her own based on her unique experiences as a mother.
