With degrees in education and psychology, Anne Lucy-Shanley is a novelist based in the American Midwest. An enthusiast of all things written, Anne dabbles in dystopian, young adult, and non-fiction writing. As a believer in happily-ever-afters, contemporary romance remains her favorite genre.
Some of Anne’s pastimes include drinking whiskey, snickering at dirty jokes, and coming up with captivating storylines while soaking in the tub. When not embracing the quiet life with a book and a cat on her lap, she occasionally travels with her husband of twenty years.
Anne loves connecting with her readers! Join the fun at her author and reader Facebook group, the Saucy Society.
I work with a diverse group of a dozen critique partners and beta readers, and without them I wouldn't have completed my MS. I'm a big believer in collaboration, especially since writing is such a solitary task. I'm always looking for something good to read, and offer constructive, honest feedback in a timely fashion. I love to beta read romance, apocalypse/dystopian, mystery (especially cozies!) and thrillers. If you are looking for a beta reader, send me a copy of your first chapter via email to see if it sparks my interest! Self-edited and polished works only, please. Feel free to reach out via social media as well.
