Anne Perry’s Plotting To Enrich Your Backstory trailer here:

Anne Perry is the international bestselling author of over eighty novels, which have sold over 27 million copies.  The Times selected her as one of the 20th Century’s “100 Masters of Crime”.  In 2015 she was awarded the Premio de Honor Aragón Negro.

Her first series of Victorian crime novels, featuring Thomas and Charlotte Pitt, began with The Cater Street Hangman.  The latest of these, is Murder on the Serpentine.

In 1990, Anne started a second series of detective novels with The Face of a Stranger. These are set about 35 years before the Pitt series, and feature the private detective, now Head of Thames River Police, William Monk and volatile nurse Hester Latterly. The most recent of these (22nd in the series) is Revenge In A Cold River (April 2016). She is translated into 17 languages.

Anne won an Edgar award in 2000 with her short story Heroes. The main character in the story features in an ambitious five-book series set during the First World War.  Her other stand-alone novels include her French Revolution novel The One Thing More, and Sheen on the Silk, which is set in the dangerous and exotic city of Byzantium.

Moving into a different area, Anne has responded to requests for workshops and teaching by producing two ‘how to write’ DVDs.   Put Your Heart On The Page: An Introduction To Writing is followed by Plotting To Enrich Your Back Story, along with her much-loved tote bags also emblazoned with the ‘Put Your Heart On The Page’ logo.  All items are now available to buy direct from her website.  For US customers order the DVDs on today.
