Anna Jacobs

I've had over 50 novels published now. Most of these are historical or modern stories, featuring family and relationships. I've been short-listed for several awards, both as Anna Jacobs and as Shannah Jay (my pen name for fantasy novels), and in 2006 my novel Pride of Lancashire won the award for Best Australian Romantic Book of the Year (longer novels).

I write historical novels for one publisher and modern novels for another. I produce three novels a year - and freely confess to being addicted to story-telling. Keep watching this website or sign up for my readers' email newsletter to find out what is happening in my writing life.
