You can find out more about us elsewhere on this website, meanwhile here are some details of our future meetings.

Future Meeting
13th July 2018

Anna StephensAnna Stephens
Anna Stephens is a UK author of gritty epic fantasy.
A literature graduate from the Open University, she works in corporate communications for an international law firm, a position of responsibility requiring a lot of professionalism and consequently greatly at odds with the fact she spends every second of free time making stuff up.
Anna loves all things speculative, from books to film to TV, and thanks to her husband Mark has developed a deep and abiding appreciation for classic Hammer and Universal horror films, as well as the chameleon genius of David Bowie.
As a second Dan black belt in Shotokan Karate, she’s no stranger to the feeling of being punched in the face, which is more help than you would expect when writing fight scenes.
Anna is a member of Birmingham Writers’ Group, a friendly bunch of geeks with a huge amount of literary talent and a penchant for Doctor Who bordering on collective obsession.
