Anne Goodwin loves fiction for the freedom to contradict herself and has been scribbling stories ever since she could hold a pencil. During her career as an NHS clinical psychologist her focus was on helping other people tell their neglected stories to themselves. Now that her short fiction publication count has overtaken her age, her ambition is to write and publish enough novels to match her shoe size.
Anne juggles her sentences while walking in the Peak District, and then loses them while battling the slugs in her vegetable plot. As a break from finding her own words, she is an avid reader and barely-competent soprano in a mixed-voice choir. The ongoing tension between her real-life and fictional sides is played out on her website, blog, and via tweets.
