“I’m an Austrian lass—totally uncomplicated and up to anything fun.”
Anna Katmore grew up in Vienna – not by free will but because her parents decided to move there when she was only 4 years old. She hated the city, everything about it. So right after graduation, she moved back to the country side where she settled down with a nice husband and an awesome laptop. (The laptop came first!)
She’s been a storyteller all her life. Already in kindergarten, she came up with the most exotic fantasies and tales. Her teacher back then called her a liar. Today, Anna calls it the cornerstone of her writing career.

That’s also part of what she teaches her sutdents in writing workshops today. Always dream big! If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.
