Anne Fitzpatrick is an Albury-based writer, born in Adelaide. She lives to travel and loves martial arts and cycling – even better when any of these are combined. She has made her way around much of Asia but her heart belongs to India and Sri Lanka, where she can eat as much dosa with coconut chutney as she likes while confusing people with her attempts to speak the Tamil language. Anne has ridden bicycles and worked as a teacher in Adelaide, Darwin, Kalgoorlie, Leigh Creek and also Kagoshima, Japan. Anne currently works in international development.
