Anne Marie Bennett Bio
Anne Marie Bennett has been writing stories and novels since the sixth grade when she was assigned to write a short story and instead turned in a 40-page novel about a little girl who stumbles on an underground cat colony. Her English teacher was so impressed, he sent it to a publisher. The publisher did not respond, but Anne Marie decided right then and there to be a Writer.
Flash forward 50 years and she is still writing stories and novels (among other things)!
Anne Marie has published several books about the intuitive process of SoulCollage®, as well as her two unique cancer journeys. Last year she released a fifty-page novella, All You Need is Love… and Lilacs, plus a young adult novel, Come As You Are. She is now focusing her creative energies on creating books and stories that are good for the soul.
These days, Anne Marie spends lots of time writing, reading, wearing bright colors, trying out scintillating varieties of dark chocolate, creating mixed media collages, working with the SoulCollage® process on her website KaleidoSoul.com, and traveling to new places with Jeff–her husband—as well as spending quality feline time with Louis and Seymour who grace her life with much love, joy, and laughter.
