Anne Coates


As well as being a staff and freelance journalist, Anne also edits and abridges fiction and narrative non-fiction. She has contributed short stories to various magazines and has published two collections with Endeavour Press. An interview with a prostitute commissioned for a national newspaper many years ago (but spiked as it was a tragic story) led her to think “what if..?” and so Dancers in the Wind, her first crime novel was conceived, published in 2016 by Urbane Publications who launched the sequel in May 2017: Death’s Silent Judgement, followed by Songs of Innocence, in May 2018. The fourth in the Hannah Weybridge series, Perdition’s Child is published on6 February, 2020. This time the murders are even closer to home – the part of south east London where she lives with three rather unimpressed cats who would rather she wrote about them. Anne is working on an idea for a stand-alone psychological thriller.
