Anna Stuart wanted to be an author from a very young age but somehow became a Factory Planner instead.   She went on to have children before returning to her first passion, writing short stories and serials for women’s magazines.  Next she became a published author of historical novels under the pseudonym Joanna Courtney.

She will continue to publish under that name but is also delighted to be writing contemporary fiction as Anna Stuart, and signing a two book deal with Trapeze. Bonnie and Stan publishes in early summer 2019.
