Anthea read English at Oxford but then went into the City to earn money... a sensible decision given that most authors make less than £600 a year! She quit after twenty years and taught creative writing in a small prep school, writing plays and adapting Shakespeare along the way.
An Arvon course (tutored by Malachy Doyle) kickstarted her proper published career and she now has three successful children's picture books with Andersen Press (part of Penguin Random House). These have taken her comfortably over the £600 limit and have been published in a number of different languages including Chinese and Korean! Her first poetry collection, 'Pignuts and Peacocks', was published by rufus books ( Canada, Dublin, London). She has been shortlisted twice for the prestigious Bridport Poetry Prize and published in various poetry journals. She blogs regularly on Diversity and Inclusion. www.diversitytalent.net www.andersenpress.co.uk/authors/view/63833
She has taught a number of adult creative writing courses and enjoys identifying hidden talent and building writers' confidence.
