About Anne Allen

Anne Allen lives in Devon, by her beloved sea. She has three children and her daughter and two grandchildren live nearby. She was born in Rugby, to an English mother and Welsh father. As a result she spent many summers with her Welsh grandparents in Anglesey and learnt to love the sea. Her restless spirit has meant a number of moves which included Spain for a couple of years. The longest stay was in Guernsey for nearly fourteen years after falling in love with the island and the people. She contrived to leave one son behind to ensure a valid reason for frequent returns.
By profession Anne is a psychotherapist but has long had creative ‘itches’, learning to mosaic, paint furniture, interior design and sculpt. At the back of her mind the itch to write was always present but seemed too time-consuming for a single mum with a need to earn a living. Now the nest is empty there’s more time to write and a second novel, Finding Mother, was released October 2013.
Her first published novel, Dangerous Waters, is a contemporary romantic mystery, set in Guernsey, a small island near France. It follows a young woman, Jeanne, who has suffered a family tragedy and now has to learn to love and live again. At the same time her life is in danger from an unexpected source. . .

A third novel, Guernsey Retreat, is due to be published in 2014.
