The Birth of Anne Lawson…

As soon as I put my pen to the paper and began writing my first novel, I started to think of having a penname. I started to write my first novel at the age of twenty two. I knew that I wanted to get married and that I would take my husband’s last name. I didn’t want to write under my maiden name, which is hard to spell, pronounce, and remember.

I wanted to pick a pen name that still had special meaning to me. My middle name is Ann, but I always wished that it was spelled with an e, like Anne of Green Gables. Now I had to figure out what my last name would be.

After college I had a degree in History, so job offers weren’t rolling in. I was living back at home in my old room. I grew up on Lawson Drive. Lawson is a nice name. It is easy to say, spell and remember. So, Anne Lawson was born.

    When I looked at your pen name, I thought, “She spelled Anne with an ‘E” like Anne of Green Gables!” I loved those movies. 🙂

    Loved “First Date” all the town’s up north you mentioned were the places I vacationed as a kid with my parents and scribblings. Brought back sweet memories. Really enjoyed this book. Look forward to the next one.

    • Thank you! I am glad that you enjoyed the book! I had friends with cottages in Harbor Springs and I feel in love with the town. My second novel in the series comes out March 25th. I hope that you enjoy following along with my characters.
