Annie Eppa

Sweden

Annie has two great loves in her life - traveling the world, and writing. She panders to both by working as a freelance photojournalist, where she is sent all over the world to write and photograph awesome people and cute animals (and sometimes even the not-so-cute ones). She's been on four continents, and hopes to add more countries to her ever-growing list. Due to her job, she has made many countries her home - Sweden, China, Brazil, the Philippines, Canada - and shuffles among these whenever she needs to.

Her debut novel, The Shrinemaiden, is an erotic fantasy set in a strange world of intrigue and bedroom politics. It is a standalone book that also manages to be the first in a series, and is due out in late 2013.
