Anne's Books

“Anne McAneny is that rara avis of a writer who creates a solidly entertaining story with as many unique aspects as the inside of a Faberge egg and then tells it with language that is equally as intoxicating as the story she is weaving… This reader has added a new favorite writer!”  ~ Grady Harp, Top Amazon Reviewer, From Review of RAVELED

“It is a long time between reads that I am swept away by an author’s captivating, rich and thought-provoking writing. This will linger in my mind for years to come.” ~ Amazon Review of CIRCLED

Anne McAneny Author

For years, as a member of the Virginia Screenwriters Forum, Anne sharpened her writing skills on screenplays that became finalists in Scriptapalooza, the Virginia Governor’s Screenwriting Contest, All She Wrote, and more. Eager for a more direct connection to readers, she self-published two humorous books before launching the Amazon Bestselling Crime After Time Collection. Her third mystery, SKEWED, caught the eye of Amazon’s Thomas & Mercer imprint and went on to become an international bestselling ebook on Amazon. Her next book, CIRCLED, won a 2016 Silver Independent Book Publishers Award, a 2016 Wishing Shelf Book Awards Bronze Medal, and was nominated for an InD’tale audiobook award. All five Crime After Time books have attained Amazon Bestseller Status many times over, including in England, Germany, and Australia. In 2018, Anne published a standalone mystery, OCULAR DENIAL, based on her original screenplay. It went on to win Second Place in the 2019 James River Writers Best Self-Published Novel Contest. Her ebooks are now widely available, and the paperback versions are available on Amazon.

Anne has presented at the Richmond Agile Writers Conference and taught self-publishing at the Chesterfield Lifelong Learning Institute. She has been featured on Conversations Live with Cyrus Webb and Talking Audiobooks with Casey Trowbridge.

Anne lives in Virginia with her husband and children, along with a rescue puggle and ever-hungry cat that adopted the family long ago. When she’s not writing or editing, she bikes, hikes, lifts, and studies nutrition before invalidating the aforementioned efforts with chocolate and Belgian beer.

Look for Anne’s newest mystery—title to be determined!—in 2019.
