Anne Hepple Dickinson, née Batty, wrote romantic novels under the pseudonym Anne Hepple. She was born in Widdrington, Northumberland, England and lived most of her life in and around Berwick and Berwickshire. She was the first editor of The Woman's Magazine in London from 1931 to 1934. A number of her short stories appeared in the magazine, and some of her novels were serialized there before being published in book form.

It was after her children grew up and all her older relations had died, that Anne began to publish her novels, which often drew on incidents from her own experience.
