Anne Carroll George was a former Alabama State Poet and cofounder of Druid Press, (find out more on the interview page) who has published four volumes of poetry, and she was been nominated for several awards, including a Pulitzer Prize.

Anne wrote numerous short stories for literary magazines, before turning to the craft of mystery writing, for which she won a coveted Agatha Award. Her hilariously funny novels reflect much of her own experience. 

Like her heroine Patricia Anne, Anne George was a happily married former schoolteacher living outside of Birmingham, Alabama, and she grew up with a cutup cousin who provided plenty of inspiration for the outrageous Mary Alice.

Anne also left us with seven wonderful Southern Sisters Mysteries.
