Anna Emm is a South African born author who spends most of her time in London these days. After experimenting with genres in her earlier work and gaining experience as an author by writing mostly in Afrikaans, these days Anna prefers to write in English, gravitating more towards full-length novels that read like 'fairy tales for adults', often mixing ordinary life with fantasy elements, unusual twists and romance.
After a brief teaching career in her early twenties, Anna launched her own company that produced audio stories for children. By the time she closed the company in 2020, Anna had written and produced more than 3 000 original children’s stories and sold millions of CDs and books, turning her into a household name and making her the biggest and most successful children’s story author in South Africa. During this time she also self-published 17 youth books, 2 volumes of short stories, 21 romance novels, 4 mystery novels and 38 short murder mystery novels, proving herself just as popular with adults as with children. Even the most reluctant readers swear that, once you pick up an Anna Emm book, you can’t put it down!
