Anna St. Claire has always been an avid reader, and now author, of both American and British historical romance. She and her husband live in Charlotte, North Carolina with their two dogs and a cat. They have also just become grandparents. Anna relocated from New York to the Carolinas as a child. Her mother, a retired English and History teacher, encouraged Anna's interest in writing, especially, after discovering short stories Anna would write in her spare time. Her fascination with history and reading led her to her first historical romance, Margaret Mitchell's 'Gone With The Wind.' The day she discovered Kathleen Woodiwiss' books, 'Shanna' and 'Ashes In The Wind', Anna was hooked. She read every historical romance that came her way. Today her focus is primarily the Civil War and Regency eras, although Anna enjoys almost any period in American and British history.
