‘Clandestine Tilak’ in Sunday Snaps: the Stories

Annie draws on her years as a teacher and time in the corporate field to bring life experience to her eclectic style of creativity in both writing and artwork. Having scribbled and sketched in the margins or being distracted by a story line and arguing characters in her head, instead of her study throughout school, university and in business meetings, she felt it time to bring her images and ideas to light.  Now a prolific scribbler of characters and weaver of stories, Annie also wields a balanced editing razor. Annie has been involved in a number of collaborative projects and is the creative energy behind the joint writing project CYOA. She writes for a number of non – fiction sites including Pop Bunker, Type A Parent and Write Anything.  She refuses to be boxed into a genre and has written speculative fiction, feminist literature, romance and adventure exploring darker themes in urban mythicalism. Annie has a number of short stories and artwork published.  Start your escapade into her world.
