All About Anna J Stewart

Anna J Stewart is a born and bred California girl. Raised in San Francisco, she discovered romances early in her parochial high school education and from then on knew what she was meant to be: a romance author.

An English graduate of California State University of Sacramento, she's held a variety of jobs that include a sales person for a national chain bookstore, a decorator at a cookie bouquet store, working at a dollhouse miniature shop (her side hobby), and, for the past seven years, she's been honored to work as NYTimes bestselling author Brenda Novak's personal assistant, helping run her annual online auction for diabetes research. In ten years, the auction has raised over $2.3 million for research.

Anna, who writes contemporary romance for both Harlequin Heartwarming and Berkley InterMix (The Tremayne Family Romances), lives in Northern California with one overly attentive and affectionate cat named Snickers. You can find her online at
