From her little teak desk on Wurundjeri land in Melbourne, Anne Freeman writes contemporary fiction about women who are stuck in life and the extraordinary ways they shake themselves loose. They’re always engaging and sometimes funny with reluctant adventures, sexy escapades and friendships that uplift.

Anne's second novel, ME THAT YOU SEE, was shortlisted in the 2022 Hawkeye Publishing Manuscript Development Prize and longlisted in the 2023 Grindstone Literary International Novel Prize. It is out now with Hawkeye Publishing

Anne's debut novel, RETURNING TO ADELAIDE was released by Hawkeye Publishing in March 2022. It was a finalist in the 2021 Romance Writers of Australia Valerie Parv Award and was longlisted in the 2021 Hawkeye Publishing Manuscript Development Prize.


Anne's short story, THE LIGHT IS GOLDEN, was awarded first place in the Open Short Story category of the 2023 Boroondara Literary Awards. Her other short stories have been awarded in the 2024 WOW! Women on Writing Flash Fiction Competition, the 2023 Fellowship of Australian Writers Queensland Short Story Competition, the 2023 Mansfield Readers and Writers Short Story Competition, the 2023 Darebin Mayor’s Creative Writing Program, the 2022 Sydney Hammond Memorial Competition and the Australian Writers' Centre Furious Fiction Competition


Her hobbies include referring to herself in third person and making her family guffaw. Oh, and wine. She likes wine.
