Ann Langley loves to write. Her pen name, Ann Barton Langley includes Barton, her maiden name, which is a big part of who she is.
She has written poetry for as long as she can remember, but on retiring as a Dental Nurse, she decided to go to a creative writing class, and joined a local group.
One of her first challenges was to write a short story based on a piece of poetry. She started writing and couldn’t stop, and so her first novel, Millie’s Lyme, was born. Millie’s Lyme is set in and around Lyme Regis, Dorset.
She has since written a number of short stories and a host of poetry - several of which have been published, and the rest are in the process of being collated into a small book which she hopes to publish at a later date. Somewhere amidst this she wrote the sequel to Millie’s Lyme, which will be published in 2012.
Although Ann was born and brought up in Somerset, the Dorset coast is one of her favourite areas.
