She has a Master's Degree in Theatre Arts and has worked as an Adjunct Professor of Theatre Arts at several Southern California universities, including The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles where she taught Acting, Auditioning and the Business of Acting.
As an internationally-renown songwriter, many of Anne's compositions can be heard worldwide, from Canada to Africa, on radio and beyond. She is also the author of several books of varying genres, including children’s and mainstream fiction and non-fiction. Her most celebrated works are The 10 Commandments of Theater and True to archeType: A Guide to Characterization in Comedy, both published by Smith & Kraus, the world’s largest publisher of theatre arts books.
Over the past 30 years, Anne has enjoyed an illustrious career on the stage. As an Equity actor, Anne appeared on the famed Kodak Theatre stage (now The Dolby Theatre) as the Narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and has toured the U.S. with other national shows. She is also an award-winning audiobook producer and has released nearly 100 published projects over the past decade, many of which are the works of New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors.
Anne has a heart for the homeless and has spent the better part of a decade working with the residents of Skid Row in Los Angeles. Her book, My Name’s Lyman, chronicles the life of a homeless man and the various destinies he might have lived had he (or those around him) made different choices. The book became a hit musical in Los Angeles (LYMAN The Musical) and can now be seen in a series of award-winning short films (A Place Less Cold, Fortune In Gold, and Leaving My Past Behind). The screenplay for the feature film is currently being shopped for future production.
Today, Anne splits her time between her homes in Las Vegas and Sedona, Arizona. She continues to work as a voiceover artist and sound engineer as she completes production on LYMAN The Movie. She also hosts a new podcast, The Actors Guide, geared to aspiring actors, which is chock full of career advice, method acting tips, and celebrity guest interviews. For fun, Anne likes to run marathons and teach kickboxing.
