I always had this desire to write and even as I child had a wild imagination. I had a variety of jobs over the years and eventually followed my passion to become a life coach. But I always had this desire to create a novel and the idea for a book simmering away!
I’m a no-nonsense straight talking ‘Yorkshire woman’ and a big believer in coincidences, so when an opportunity to coach women in prison was presented to me that’s when the dream became a reality. As a personal life coach who specialises in working with women I jumped at the chance to work within the prison system. It’s not for the faint hearted but I felt blessed.So it began, as here the seeds of my first novel Imprisoned Heart, were born.
This captivating story is about Katrina Sanderson, an innocent victim of circumstance. Wrong place, wrong man, wrong time! Sentenced to prison for a crime she did not commit, where power hungry officers blackmail for sex. A compelling account of triumph over adversity, empowerment and a love so strong nothing can break it.

A word from Annette on Imprisoned Heart…
Writing this novel took twelve months around a full time job, but the following eight years to publication have been the most challenging and rewarding.
When writing Imprisoned Heart, I lived and breathed the characters getting to know them intimately. I brought them alive especially the main character Katrina Sanderson, whom I am especially fond of because she has so much of me in her.
I could spend hours acknowledging everyone who has been part of this journey from inmates, prison officers, and publishing houses that turned me down flat making me more determined!
My intention for this novel is to show the reader despite how difficult things are there is always opportunity for change. I personally overcame many obstacles and challenges to continue writing imprisoned Heart, so for me this truly feels part of my life’s purpose.
My sincere thanks and heartfelt love go everyone who helped make my dream a reality.
Whoever you are reading this right now, then I urge you to do just the same and be your own trailblazer.
With Love ♥
