Her debut suspense novel, Just One More, releases 21 March 2023 with Penzler Publishing and is available for pre-order now from Indie Bound and Barnes & Noble. She is represented by Jill Marsal of the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.

Annette is a nine-time recipient of Utah’s Best of State Medal for novels and short fiction. She’s one of three co-founders of and the original editor of The Timeless Romance Anthology series and its spinoff series, and she's one of the authors of The Newport Ladies Book Club series.

Though she’s well-known for her editing and word-nerdery skills and appreciated for her cookbook, Chocolate Never Faileth, her heart has always belonged to writing fiction.

She lives in the Rocky Mountains near her four grown children, one granddaughter, and Fiona, a geriatric flame-tipped Siamese cat with an attitude. When she's not writing, knitting, reading, or eating chocolate, she's likely ignoring the spots on the kitchen floor and binge-watching Gilmore Girls or Criminal Minds with her husband.

She has dual U.S./Swiss citizenship, she's half Finnish/all Finno-phile, has ADHD, and is both a chronic migraineur and an unapologetic word nerd. In addition to her Medium publications, fans can find her online on her website, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, and can sign up for her newsletter.
