Anne Raven was born and raised along the windy coast of South Africa and can assure everyone there are no lions roaming the streets—unless you count the feral cat next door. When not reading or writing, you can find her spending time with Luna, her giant Boerboel aka South African Mastiff puppy, taking freshly baked goods from the oven, or drinking too much coffee. In 2020, she officially launched her book cover design business, Black Bird Book Covers, and loves working with amazing authors.
Anne loves writing in multiple genres, but her stories always tend toward darker themes with gritty edges. Her books often feature found families, resilient heroines, non-toxic alpha heroes, and vivid settings. Her romantic suspense IN THE NAME OF THE MOTHER was showcased in Pitch Wars 2017, and in 2019 she returned to co-mentor with Janet Walden-West.
Anne is represented by Amanda Jain at BookEnds Literary Agency.
For Pitch Wars 2020, Anne Raven is co-mentoring with Janet Walden-West.
