    Anne Bruce English was introduced to Edinburgh as a child by her uncle, when she found the louring buildings of the Old Town somewhat intimidating. She has now lived here for many years and loves the city. Her strong interest in Edinburgh has led to her spending a lot of time wandering through the neuks and wynds of the Old Town, and discovering its past. She enjoys its light and its architecture and the fact that walking round a corner can unexpectedly reveal hills or the river or a gothic spire.

    Her Discovering Durham City published by County Durham Books in 1999, has proved very popular with young people and visitors, and she is currently working on Let's Explore Berwick-Upon-Tweed.

    Anne has written widely for children, including stories, poems and dramatised scripts for BBC radio programmes (Edinburgh and London based), and is published in many anthologies. Her interest in children's stories and how they develop began when she started reading to her own young children. She was responsible for establishing the successful Edinburgh Children's Book Group. She is married with two daughters and an elderly cat.
