anneli_purchase_3 novels

Anneli Purchase lives on Vancouver Island where she works as an author and freelance copy-editor. Her articles on writing advice and coastal life are published in Canadian and UK magazines while her short stories and anecdotes are available on her blogs “wordsfromanneli” (https://wordsfromanneli.wordpress.com) and “anneli’s place”  (http://annelisplace.wordpress.com).

Her novels involve relationships that develop in unusual settings, on the wild and remote coast of British Columbia, in the primitive camping conditions of Mexico’s Baja peninsula, and in postwar Europe and northern British Columbia. Her aim is to have the reader still thinking about these people and places long after they close the covers of the books.

Anneli Purchase is the author of three novels, “The Wind Weeps”, “Orion’s Gift” and “Julia’s Violinist”. All novels are available as e-books and paperbacks through amazon.com .
