The Black Sheep continue stitching and crime solving in The Postman Always Purls Twice (2015) and A Murder In Mohair (2015). Publisher's Weekly noted, "Cozy fans

will enjoy spending time with the distinctive main characters, all of whom are intelligent, working women."


Anne began working on the "Cape Light" novels in 1999, creating the series for

the artist Thomas Kinkade. Under the pseudonym Katherine Spencer, she has

ghost written all seventeen titles. She also created and wrote the spin off series,

“Angel Island." For over fifteen years, both the Cape Light and Angel Island stories have drawn a large and loyal readership and new titles are eagerly awaited.


When she's not at her desk, Anne enjoys cooking, gardening, photography, cycling and "do-it-yourself" projects. Lots of reading, of course, and watching movies - especially classic and indie films. She also has a not-so-secret weakness for British mystery series. Volunteering in the community, she works with the homeless, a food pantry and a literacy group that provides free books for children in need. Feeling very fortunate to live near the beach, she spends time there in all seasons.


Anne lives with her husband, daughter and a scruffy Retriever in Northport, NY—

a village on the Long Island Sound very much like the towns depicted in her books.

She has a Masters Degree from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Arts from Stony Brook University. Anne  is always happy to be in touch

with readers.
