Anne Corlett spent thirteen years as a criminal lawyer. She is still unsure how this happened, given a firm intention to work in publishing, two linguistic degrees and a stint as an etymologist. She has now returned to writing, and has completed two novels, for which she is represented by the Richford Becklow agency. She also writes non-fiction for magazines.
