Following a 15 year career in the Civil Service, and 10 years as a Registered Childminder, Anne decided to return to higher education. In 2006, she earned a joint MA from Glasgow University in English Literature and History of Art. After graduating, Anne worked as an assistant to the Director of the West End Festival and as a flower delivery driver. In 2010, she returned to university and obtained an MA in Creative Writing from Napier University.
- BBC Radio Scotland Comedy Writing Initiative (2007)
- Crimestoppers Children's Story Commission (2008). In 2008, I was commissioned by Crimestoppers Scotland to write a children's story; the aim of which was to make children aware of the work done by the organisation and to encourage them to report crime. The resulting story, The Adventures of Nonny Moose, was published online and used in primary schools across the North East of Scotland.
