Anna Jacobs


(Sherry-Anne Jacobs)
UK flag (b.1941)

aka Sherry-Anne Jacobs, Shannah Jay

Anna Jacobs was born in England but emigrated to Australia in 1973. Now she and her husband spend part of the year in each country. She's totally addicted to writing, and produces three novels a year. If she slows down, new characters nag her till she tells their stories. And after all, dusting isn't important - story-telling is.  At the moment Anna is writing historical sagas for one UK publisher and modern novels for another, but she doesn't guarantee not to try other genres. Writing is too much fun to be limited in any way. She's been married to her own hero for many happy years, and they have two daughters and one grandson.

Anna also wrote fantasy novels as Shannah Jay, and these books have now been reissued as Kindle books.
