Anna Birch was born-‘n’-raised in a rural area on the outskirts of Birmingham, Alabama. She’s traded in her thick forests and dirt roads for the heart of the city, where she lives now with her husband, three children, and dog. Anna’s debut, I KISSED ALICE (Imprint/Macmillan), is a queer f/f You’ve Got Mail retelling that takes place in equal parts between a fictional Birmingham performing arts school and an anonymous fan fiction website. Outside of writing, Anna is a graduate student at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in the k-12 ESL program and she’s looking forward to being placed in her first classroom! She loves knitting, brie, and hanging out with her family.
