March 2011’s Author of the Month – Anne Rivers Siddons

Anne Rivers Siddons, born 1936, graduate of Auburn University, started her career off as – what people may call, a free minded writer. She knew she was meant to be a writer when she was fired for her powerful articles in an Alabama Newspaper in which gained national attention. It was her articles like these that got her an offer from an editor; eager and interested to have her write a novel. Today Anne writes Domestic Fiction, women and relationship stories, romantic stories, and psycholgical fiction. She states that she doesn’t want to romanticize anything, she wants to write about the South as it really is.
