Anneli Purchase: Living In the Wilds of Vancouver Island

Anneli[7]I live on Vancouver Island, Canada, where I work as an author and freelance copy-editor. My articles on coastal life have been published in Canadian magazines. For short stories and anecdotes along with photos of places I’ve been click here.

My novels involve relationships that develop in unusual settings, from the wild and remote coast of British Columbia, to the primitive camping areas of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, or the grisly conditions in postwar central Europe. My aim is to have the reader still thinking about these people and places long after they close the covers of the books.

Catching Up With Anneli

 

Authors love positive feedback on their books. Recently a woman who had read Julia’s Violinist told a friend about one of her experiences after reading the book:

Lisa:

We had just come back from a great meal at an Austrian restaurant where … a couple sat down across from us. The man [of the couple] and I made eye contact and the first thing that came into my mind was “KARL!” Somehow he looked just like the Karl in the book whom I really did NOT like … but I liked the book and I liked the author’s writing. Funny, isn’t it, that a character will make such an impression.

What’s new? If you live in British Columbia, visit Blue Heron Books in Comox. You’ll find all three novels there.
