Anne Oliver was born in Adelaide, South Australia, where she's lived all her life. She has two adult children. She holds a B.Ed with a major in science and has worked in early childhood education for nearly thirty years.
Anne began writing in 1998 and is a member of the Romance Writers of America, the Romance Writers of Australia and the Romance Writers of New Zealand. She started entering writing contests in 1999 and was a finalist in several contests in the USA, Australia and New Zealand before being accepted by Harlequin Mills and Boon for their Modern Extra series in December 2005.
When not teaching or writing, Anne loves to escape into books. Eight years ago she began creating her own characters in paranormal and time-travel adventures before turning to writing contemporary romance. She reads all the Modern Heat books—which come out in Australia as Sexy Sensations—and enjoys the diversity of theme, characters and style, which is why she loves writing them.
In August 2007 she won the Romance Writers of Australia’s Romantic Book of the Year Award with her first Modern Extra novel, Behind Closed Doors…
Her other interests include animal welfare and conservation, quilting, astronomy, all things Scottish—and eating anything she doesn’t have to cook. She’s traveled to Papua/New Guinea, the west coast of America, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the UK and Holland.
