UK flag (b.1930)

aka Vanessa Graham

Anthea Mary Fraser is a novelist. Her mother was a published novelist[1] and Anthea began composing poems and stories before she could write. At the age of five she announced that she wanted to be an author.[2] However, despite having been a prolific writer in school, she did not become a professional writer until after her two daughters were born.

Her first professional publications were short stories. Her first novel was published in 1970. Her first significant success was with her 1974 novel Laura Possessed, which had a paranormal theme, and was followed by 6 other similarly themed novels. She then wrote some romantic suspense stories before turning to writing crime fiction.
