Annie has been staying with Island Gateway Holiday Park for years. She calls us her second home.
Annie Seaton lives near the beach on the east coast of Australia. She is fulfilling her lifelong dream of writing and has been delighted to discover that readers love reading her stories as much as she loves writing them. Her career and studies have spanned the education sector for most of her working life, with the completion of a Masters Degree in Education, and working as an academic research librarian, a high school principal and a university tutor until she took up a full-time writing career. Recently her genre of choice is women’s fiction and you can read of the topical human and social issues that she explores in Kakadu Sunset. Annie gains inspiration from the natural beauty of landscapes and is passionate about raising awareness of the need to preserve the pristine areas that surround us. She is also published internationally in e-books in the romance genre, and in 2015 was voted Best Established Australian Author by romance readers in the AusRom Today Readers’ Choice Awards. In 2016 Kakadu Sunset was shortlisted for the Ruby Award in the category of best long romance. Each winter, Annie and her husband leave the beach to roam the remote areas of Australia for story ideas and research. Annie says: My love of books, reading and writing, began even before I started school and I discovered libraries! My skills were developed in “composition” classes during primary school and continued throughout the completion of an English and History degree. I am delighted that my first print book is now available in book stores AND on library shelves! I love to travel and you can find two of my recent travel blogs here: Outback Australia… a three year journey Tuscany 2014
