Anne's Humor and Heart

It’s Valentine’s week, and I am giving a shout out to some of my favorite VHP authors whom I feel privileged to have met and grown to love.  They don’t know I’m doing this…it’s my secret surprise Valentine to each of them.  So far, you’ve met Smoky Trudeau Zeidel, Charmaine Gordon, Melinda Clayton, Chelle Cordero,  Malcolm Campbell and Marilyn Celeste Morris, L.E.Harvey, Robert Hays, Collin Kelley and Janet Lane Walters.  
It’s been an exciting week!  The next author I’d like to introduce is Anne K. Albert.

Anne K. Albert has taught high school art, sold display advertising for a weekly newspaper, and worked for a national brand water company, but now writes full time. A member of the Romance Writers of America, she’s grateful for the constructive criticism, encouragement, and many friendships she’s garnered along the road to publication.

Anne’s award winning stories (Defending Glory and Frank, Incense & Muriel) chill the spine, warm the heart and soothe the soul...all with a delightful touch of humor.

I haven’t had the opportunity to read Defending Glory yet, but it is on my to-do list.  I have read Frank, Incense & Muriel and have recommended it to several friends and family members.   I can’t tell you the story without giving it away, so I won’t try…but suffice to say there are many twists and turns and the plot is never boring.  In fact, I laughed out loud in several scenes.  I was sad when I read the last page because I didn’t want the book to end.  If you haven’t read it, order it today… I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Anne says, "I find dead bodies and hang out with zany people who lead exciting, exceptional lives. Well, actually, I just made that up. I spend most of my life chained to my computer where I write mystery and romantic suspense stories. All. By. Myself."  She’s a character and that’s probably why she’s able to bring such vibrancy to the characters in her books.

When not writing Anne loves to travel with her high school sweetheart husband, visit with friends and family, walk on the beach, knit, crochet and of course, read using 'Threegio' her cherished and much beloved Kindle 3G. 

Happy Valentine’s Day, Anne!  J





  1. I have to tell you, Anne, that's one great title. I only wish "Jock Stewart" had thought of it first.


    1. Thank you, Malcolm. It actually came to me before I wrote the book. I knew I wanted a Christmas theme, but I also wanted to express Muriel's anxiety with Frankie. Simply breathing he manages to press her buttons, and of course, that adds to the fun!

  2. Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day, Anne!

    1. I did, Melinda. Hope yours was extra special, too!

  3. Thank you so much, Susan. What a lovely surprise. I've been offline for a few days, visiting with family and also nursing a cold and sore throat, so this touches my heart. HUGS!
