A note from Anne Michaud:

With a BA in Film Production from Concordia University and a Masters in Screenwriting from the Royal Holloway of England, everything drew me to a career behind the camera, but the love of the written word was too strong to keep me away from the loneliness of a writer. Since, a dozen novels, news published in magazines with international draw of which some have made their way in anthologies harvesting mentions and prices, especially abroad.
