Meet the Authors: Ann Rawson

Ann Rawson's debut novel, A Savage Art, inspired by her love of textile arts and dark fairy tales, was published by Fahrenheit Press in 2016. She's now looking for a home for her second novel, which features paganism, Roman treasure, and a dysfunctional family. In 2008 her short story “The Tree of Knowledge” was shortlisted for the Asham Award. Although she still thinks of herself as a northerner, she now lives near Brighton on the south coast of England. Ann has worked as a receptionist in the ER, as a cleaner and rent collector, and currently as a software tester and small business founder. She frequently walks on the chalk hills and white cliffs with her husband, and while he solves software problems, she plots her third novel. They are often accompanied by their yowling cat.
