Ann Henrietta Barlow was born in Dumfries, Scotland and moved to England at the age of 14 and currently lives between Norway and Dubai with her husband Guy.

Her love of reading and movies encouraged Ann to start writing at an early age but after starting a family and with a busy career writing was put on the back burner.

Nowadays when Ann isn’t traveling, she is either writing or reading and is busy on her second series, a futuristic thriller about Kate Palmer. An Enforcer with a mission. The first of the new series is set in the year 2054 after a civil uprising that spanned half the globe and that splits the world into two factions. The first book in the series – The Shallow Grave Killer, follows Kate as she receives her promotion to Detective Inspector and joins the hunt to catch the most prolific killer in the Union.
