Biography Annie grew up playing make believe in the dark woods of Alaska. As a child she was fascinated by ghost stories, and the violent stories of how people died in the wilderness. She continued to live in Alaska until 2010 when she, her husband and their cats relocated to Portland, Oregon. Where they fell in love with the city and still live currently. Today she spends most of her time embroidering, reading fairy tales, bicycling, and hiking in the mountains.
