Annette Austin is a self-published author of five novels in the acclaimed The James Saga series, ‘The Fall of the House of James’, ‘Always A Slave, ‘A Slave’s Vow’, ‘Betrayal of Love’ and ‘Between Love and War.’ Her first novel spent some time at the Number 1 spot on Amazon (History of Antebellum U.S. Chart.) All five of the books in The James Saga have garnered five-star reviews on Amazon.
Before she embarked on a writing career, Annette predominantly had a career in finance. Whilst she achieved some success, her ambition was to become a full-time author. After she had a startling dream in December 2012, it gave her the impetus to start writing her first novel, ‘The Fall of the House of James.’ Following a long personal struggle, the book was finally released in June 2018. Since then, she has published four more books in The James Saga. Annette is hoping to publish several more in the series. Recently, she has published her fifth novel, ‘Between Love and War’, which is available on Amazon. She will begin work on two more novels shortly. Annette has always been fascinated by history including the more brutal and controversial aspects which many people are unwilling to discuss, hence this was a factor in setting the novels during the time of slavery.
Away from writing, Annette loves to read, exercise, especially yoga, sings loudly to 1980’s pop music and is a sports enthusiast (watching, not taking part.)
