Hello and welcome,

Thank you for visiting my website. First off, can I tell you about a Writing Romance Workshop that I am running with author Karen King (alias) Kay Harborne. It takes place at my office base, which is Tysall's Photography Studio, 378 Croft Road, Nuneaton CV10 7DY this Thursday, 30th January 2104, from 6.30-9pm. The cost is £15. There are still a few places left, please email me if you would like to come along. ann-evans@btconnect.com
I always think it's nice to know a little about the author as well as the books, so here's a few snippets of info about me. I began writing just as a hobby in the late 1970s – early 80s and discovered that I enjoyed it so much that it gradually became much more than a hobby – more a way of life!

My latest children's book is The Trunk published by Penguin, under the name of S.Carey (scary). It's a cute little pocket book which is part of the Eerie Series
While another of my books, The Beast published by Usborne has won the Raring2Read category in the Coventry Inspiration Book Awards 2013. Big thank you to everyone who voted for it.
A Tropical Affair first published by My Weekly is now out in hardback, published by Magnaand available in libraries and good book shops, and as an ebook on Amazon. Champagne Harvest was first published by People's Friend (DC Thompson) and is now out in large print, (F.A.Thorpe Publishing).

I love writing non-fiction too. A Children's History of Coventry seems to be very popular in schools, I'm happy to say. Plus I write magazine features on absolutely anything and everything! I worked for 13 years at the Coventry Telegraph as a Feature Writer, writing specifically on food and drink, gardens, travel and pets. My Pet SOS weekly feature won the RSPCA Media Award one year, and I know the regular animal news helped many homeless cats and dogs find new homes.

As a non-fiction writer, I can also write press releases and copy for businesses, websites and advertisements. Email me for details.

It's great to help other up and coming writers and so I regularly run writing courses and workshops at my Nuneaton studio, and for anyone further afield, please contact me regarding my online courses. Budding writers will find my book Become A Writer. A Step by Step Guide useful. Plus I do school visits. There's more details on the school visits page.

So please browse my website, have a read of the various book extracts, and pop over to the 'kids' area too and see what's going on there.


I'm very excited to say that Celeste a young adult time slip thriller will be published later this year. The publisher is Astraea Press, and they will be bringing the book out as a ebook to begin with and then a paperback. I can't wait to see this in print, and really hope you will enjoy it. It's set in my home city of Coventry both in modern times and the Medieval past.

My Monday evening writing class have published their first ebook of short stories, and I'm so thrilled with the work they have produced. It's called Winter Tales by Check it out on Amazon.
