Author, developmental editor, freelance writer and social media consultant, Anne Louise O'Connell, has been an expat since 1993 when she and her husband escaped the cold of Toronto, Canada and moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. They enjoyed the sun and sand for 14 years, while she worked in the PR field, and then decided it was time for a new adventure. Heading for even more sun and sand, they moved to Dubai in late 2007 and then on to Thailand in 2011. Since 2007, Anne has been writing books while doing freelance copywriting, editing, author mentoring and social media consulting, along with conducting writing retreats and workshops. She is a regular contributor to Global Living Magazine and Expat Focus. She and her husband have a passion for travel and that adventurous spirit has taken them all over the world. Anne grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia and has a bachelor of public relations from Mount St. Vincent University. She is the author of @Home in Dubai... Getting Connected Online and on the Ground; 10 Steps to a Successful PR Campaign - a Do-it-Yourself Guide for Authors; and Mental Pause, her first novel, a 2013 Independent Publisher Book Award winner. Her latest novel, Deep Deceit, came out on March 8, 2015. She has also edited a children's book called General Nutty and the Ink Pots by Pauline Oliver as well as a memoir set in India called The Family from Padma Vilas by Padmini Sankar and workbooks in the Embers of the World series by Debbie Nicol.
