Anne on writing dyslexia friendly time-travel series, Timepiece, which follows a troubled young woman who finds a series of very special timepieces:
“I first thought of writing these stories when I was told how many people, especially the young, do not have the information and the fun that I have in reading. The companionship is boundless for adventure, laughter, the dreams and experiences of every other human being who has put their thoughts on paper.
“More than that, I was angry and distressed that anyone should be shut out of this great community, feel alone, not good enough and without the words to express themselves.
“I chose history because everyone should feel included, no their roots and catch a small site of the courage and selflessness of the heroes of the past, and know that it belongs to them as much as to everyone else.”
