Anne likes to write short stories, a practice that she started in high school after encouragement from two different English teachers. She let go of the art form after school, during a tour of duty in the Army but then revisited it for a short time during her college years, after her military service. After college, life got in the way and Anne didn’t write anything fictional at all for some time.
Life is still in the way – always – but Anne is compelled to write. It’s a passion she doesn’t feel at all guilty indulging.
When she started writing again, a half dozen years ago, it was the short story she turned to first; a fan fiction story, to be exact. That story, based on the two most popular characters in the 1980’s television sitcom, ‘The Facts of Life’ has never seen the light of day…and it probably never will. Anne talks about that story here.
The story was the spark. She’s gone on to write multiple novellas and full-length novels and she’ll continue to do that but the short story form continued to beckon to her. She finally decided to answer its call.
The Short Stories and Series:
Loving Blue in Red States
A minimum ten story romance series (some sweet, some hot), released over time, authored by Anne and by other contributing lesfic authors about living and loving as lesbians and queer women in areas of the United States where gay isn’t okay.
The series kicked off in mid-April 2017 with the semi-sweet short story, Loving Blue in Red States: Sweetwater Texas. The second short story in the series, Birmingham Alabama, was released in mid-May and Jackson Hole Wyoming was released in late May.
All stories in the series will be released on Amazon for the Kindle and for Kindle Unlimited for 90 days after which they will become available at all major eBook retailers.
A five short story series kicking off in the summer of 2017 featuring lesfic stories surrounding romance and every lesbian’s favorite summer sport: softball. The stories will take place inside of one league.
Current plans are to renew the series each summer with at least five new short stories.

Couples in Camo
An ongoing series that will kick off in the fall of 2017 featuring hot and hotter lesfic romance stories about women in uniform, in all branches of military service.
Anne will write some of these stories. Jug Run Press, Ltd. is looking for contributions from other authors in the U.S. and around the world with experience in the armed services of their own country and/or with experience writing military-themed short fiction set in one of the branches of the armed services in their country.
