Anna Romer was born in Australia to a family of booklovers. She led a nomadic life for many years, travelling in an ancient Kombi van around Europe and Britain where she discovered a passion for history.

These days she lives in a little old cottage surrounded by bushland, writing stories about dark family secrets, rambling houses, characters haunted by the past, and settings that feature the uniquely beautiful Australian landscape.

Anna’s debut bestselling novel was Thornwood House, followed by Lyrebird Hill, Beyond the Orchard and Under the Midnight Sky. She is currently working on her next book.
