Thank you for visiting my author page. It's a great opportunity to be in touch with my readers, to hear your response to my books and to say thank you for your support and interest. I really appreciate feedback so do please get in touch via twitter @annesebba or via my website www.annesebba.com.
I was born in London and went to London University where I read History, specialising in 20th century French History. I then lived in Rome where I worked as a foreign correspondent for Reuters followed by a couple of years in New York, where I started my freelance career.

I have written nine non- fiction books for adults since then mostly biographies of iconic women such as Mother Teresa, Laura Ashley and Jennie Churchill, Winston's American Wife. In 2011, I published That Woman a life of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor based on a hidden archive of letters that I discovered in an attic and in 2016 Les Parisiennes: How the Women of Paris Lived, Loved and Died in the 1940's (Weidenfeld & Nicolson UK )or Les Parisiennes How the Women of Paris Lived, Loved and Died under the Nazi Occupation according to the US version. (St Martin's Press US) It was described as 'fascinating and beautifully written' by the Spectator. http://www.spectator.co.uk/2016/07/keeping-up-appearances-in-1940s-paris/

I am thrilled finally to be writing about France in the 1940s after all those years when I studied it at University. I hope you find it a fascinating story too.
