Born and raised among the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina, J. Annas Walker was brought listening to oral history and traditional storytelling. Her hobby of writing short stories bloomed out of this tradition. With the encouragement of her sisters, husband, an aunt, and a very supportive cousin, she took a chance to turn her hobby into something larger.
After acquiring a bachelors of science in civil engineering technology, she worked for a number of years as a transportation designer. Designing road construction projects by day, she continued writing by night. Today, she writes more than she ever did and blends fantasy and paranormal into romance storylines. The fanged, spectral, magical, and furry have become everyday life.
J. Annas Walker lives with her husband, two teenage sons, and her cat/office assistant.
Besides reading and writing books, I enjoy knitting, crocheting, cross-stitch, embroidery, and cooking. All that sounds very domestic doesn't it? But there is so much more.
I love remodeling and construction. There is something to be said for building things with your own hands. The satisfaction comes from watching a space go from old and shabby to fresh, clean, and functional. It is a little like watching a story unfold.
