Welcome! I'm starting the year with a new website and I'm thrilled with it. Each of my books has its own page full of information and some behind the scenes stuff you won't find elsewhere. You can read the first chapters of each book. Click on 'Books' on the menu line above then choose the one you want to find out more about.

Do take time to have a good look around.

I'm published mainly as Anna Jacobs, writing historical sagas and modern novels alternately, and I used to write fantasy novels as Shannah Jay.


In January 2015 I was delighted to see my 70th novel published. 'A Time to Remember' is the first in a new series called 'Rivenshaw' after the imaginary Lancashire town in which it's set. These stories take place just after World War 2, a time I remember as a little child.

This year will see the third and final of the Greyladies books published (Legacy of Greyladies) and several other books. Some of my older stories, published only in hardback, will be coming out in mass market paperback editions. The first of these will be a modern story 'Winds of Change' in March.

Things are changing greatly in the book world and some of my early books, long out of print, have now been published in large paperback format via Amazon's CreateSpace system by my clever husband. If you put 'Anna Jacobs CreateSpace' in the search box at Amazon you'll find them.

The first series I ever wrote, 'The Gibson Family Saga' (starting with Salem Street) is about to be given new covers. It's been in print over twenty years and many readers still tell me it's their favourite. Look for it around July.

All my books are, of course, available as ebooks.


Because I've moved to another town, I've had to close down my PO Box, but of course I can't remove this information from books already published. I can no longer receive letters/snail mail, but you can still contact me by email.


If you want to know which books are in each series, click on 'Series' on the menu line above. All the series are listed there. If you want to read about a specific book, click on Book List above and then click on the title of the book you want.

If you watch the Latest Books section on the right, you’ll see the covers for my recent publications. The covers change about every 15 seconds.

Below that is a link to my Facebook page 'Anna Jacobs Books' which you may find of interest as well.

There is other information on this website, including photos. You can find out about it from the menu line above.



If you're interested in being kept up to date with information about my books, you can sign up for my email newsletter. You'll receive news approximately every 4-6 weeks and be in the first group to hear the news of my coming books and what I'm currently writing.
