About Anne Armistead (Atlanta, Georgia Author)
When she’s not wearing her story-telling hat as Anne Armistead, historical romance author, she’s Sandra Havriluk, middle school English teacher, children’s writer, wife, mom of two grown daughters and a rescue mutt named Jackpot. She earned her English literature degree from the University of Georgia and her MFA in Creative Writing from Spalding University and is a member of the Society of Children Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Romance Writers of America (RWA) and the Georgia Writers of Romance (GRW), and the National and Georgia Sisters in Crime (SinC) organization.
She remembers the old-fashioned days before computers, iPhones, and air-conditioning, which may be why historical fiction is her favorite genre. However, she’s not complaining about technology, for she’d be living in the stacks of the library without the internet. In the words of this Southern woman, bless its little heart.
As a child, she actually looked forward to her doctor and dentist appointments because she loved to read the Highlights for Children magazines always in the waiting rooms. Seeing her own stories published in this magazine is a childhood dream come true. Her love of storytelling came naturally from her daddy, who spun tales of his growing up in the South. She cherishes a collection of his hats, which she believes brings her a touch of his storytelling magic.
Dangerous Conjurings is her debut historical romance novel. Under the title Treacherous Hearts, it was the winner of the 2014 YA Fab 5 Wisconsin Romance Contest.
