Ann Henrietta Barlow was born in Dumfries, Scotland and moved to England at the age of 14 and currently lives between Norway and Dubai with her husband Guy.
After working for several years as an accountant and then as an independent consultant for computer accounting packages, Ann changed course and worked as a Marketing and Communications Executive based in the Finance Sector.
Her love of reading and movies encouraged Ann to start writing at an early age but after starting a family and with a busy career writing was put on the back burner. The character Sahara Driver was first conceived while Ann was living full time in Dubai and the concept for The Guardian’s Chronicles took root a short time later. Once the idea was in place she wrote the first draft for A New Dawn in under 3 months and after a break of almost a year because of family commitments she completed A World Without Faith in around the same time period.
The complete series is scheduled to be complete by March 2013.
Ann has traveled extensively and become familiar with many different cultures and the book takes place in a several countries in four continents.
