Anne M Scriven is a writer of narrative non-fiction. She holds a PhD in Scottish Literature — a field she also lectured in — and has been an Honorary Fellow for Scottish Cultural Studies at the University of Strathclyde.

She was series editor for the publishing company of Kennedy & Boyd and was instrumental in bringing various Scottish literature titles back into print.

In 2010 she produced a new annotated edition of Kirsteen by Margaret Oliphant (the focus of Anne's doctorate studies), published by the Association for Scottish Literary Studies (ASLS).

She left academia to become a freelance writer. In 2013 Learning To Listen: Life and a Nervous Dog was published followed by Provenance: Tales of A Bookshop in 2015. Both titles published by Kennedy and Boyd.

She is currently working on a new book and also works part-time in a second-hand bookshop where, allegedly, her book Provenance is set.

Anne lives in the West of Scotland with a husband, one son, two dogs and a head full of thoughts.

Anne's new spiritual memoir, Cadences, has just been published by Kennedy and Boyd.
