Anita Waller

 

Anita Waller was born in Sheffield, South Yorkshire in 1946. She married Dave in 1967 and they have three adult children, Matthew, Siân and Kirsty along with seven grandchildren ranging in age from Brad at 22 down to baby Isaac, just 2 years old. And now, to bring further joy, their first great-grandchild, a little girlcalled Lily Grace, due on 7 January 2017, their golden wedding anniversary, was born on 10 January!
She began writing when she was around 8 years of age, writing 'compositions' at junior school that became books with chapters. She wrote several novels in the romance genre and then realised she wanted to add murders to the romances, so she morphed into a psychological thriller author. Beautiful was her first completed novel in this genre.
In 1995 she sent Beautiful to a publisher and as they reached the contract stage the publisher went into liquidation. It was all to do with Eric Cantona and leaping over the barrier - don't ask!
As a result, the book was consigned to the attic in dejected disgust but in 2013 it was dragged out again for an enforced complete re-type. The original was written on an Amstrad 8256 and the only thing that remained was one hard copy.
Anita is not a typist and it was painfully reworked over two years, submitted to Bloodhound Books who, within three days of reading it, offered her a contract. 1 September 2015 it was released as an ebook, to be followed a couple of days later by the paperback version.
Following the outstanding success of Beautiful, she began a sequel on 27 December 2015, finishing it on 19 March 2016. The new novel, Angel, was launched on 7 May 2016.
Her third novel, 34 Days, followed Angel and was launched on 3 October 2016 to outstanding success; at its highest level, it was #26 in Amazon charts. It is selling equally as well in the US and Australia and has sold over 15,000 copies in the first eight weeks following publication.
Anita has been desperately trying to find another Amstrad marvel written many years ago called Essence of Lavender. This, again, is in hard copy and she has put it carefully away in a safe place. Unfortunately. the safe place is safer than she realised, and she can't find it! This manuscript has now been re-worked and Bloodhound Books launched this on 24 February 2017, with the new title of Winterscroft.  She is confident the old draft will surface when the new version is launched!
In addition to writing, she also teaches patchwork and quilting - a little reference to this is likely to surface in every book!
She is a lifelong Sheffield Wednesday supporter with blue blood in her veins! More than a little reference to this is likely to surface - see 34 Days!

Her genre is murder - necessary murder.
