Anne Manning believes she was a Texan in a previous life. Most of her books are set in her beloved Texas, where she has lived with her perfect husband, wonderful daughter, three persnickety cats, and the cutest thing that ever lived, Ozzy, a Lhasa Apso.
Her books are a mix of times, places, and people, from post Civil War Texas to modern day Washington, D.C., from hard-working ranchers to the President of the United States. But always, her stories are filled with the hope of happily-ever-after.
"Romance has to be the best possible world for an optimist. There's always trouble, but there's always a happy ending.
And hope for happiness is the greatest gift a writer can bring a reader," Anne says.
