    Anne Booth studied English at The University of York, but after some years working in a bookshop and teaching in Italy, she studied Pastoral Theology for a year before working as an administrative assistant in a Christian Charity. Whilst working she completed a part-time MA in Children's Literature, which she still loves! After getting married and raising four children, she took art classes as a hobby. Later, she worked part-time running singing and art classes in an old people's home, and tutoring. She then, she studied another part-time MA in the evenings - this time in Creative Writing! She gave up teaching to become a full-time carer for her elderly parents and during this time, she began to write books for children, got an agent and then got published. Her first book, Girl with a White Dog, for 9-12 year olds was published in 2014 and since then, she has published two more books for 9-12 year olds, four picture books, four books for 5-8 year olds and one book for 7-9 year olds. In her own words, "Jenny The Shy Angel" will be my fifth picture book and my 13th children's book, so I feel very blessed! I absolutely love Ruth Hearson's illustrations for this book!"
