Anna Rowser is a former Language Arts teacher who briefly turned to technical writing before earning an MFA in fiction from the University of Maryland, where she also taught creative and academic writing. Since settling in the Los Angeles suburbs, she has delved into the world of film. She co-wrote and produced the period short film, “Automotive Landscape No. 1” and has script supervised on a handful of others. When she isn’t reading, writing, pruning fruit trees, or perfecting a sourdough pizza crust, she may be hiking around the San Gabriel Mountains–or even marching across The Racetrack Playa in Death Valley, as pictured.
BONUS FUN FACT: Anna spent a year volunteering at The Bird House at Smithsonian National Zoo and now knows more about birds than the average person. For instance, silent flight is one of the owl’s super powers, and hummingbirds use spider webs to build their nests so they will stretch as the babies grow.
