Anette Pedersen was born and raised in Denmark where she currently resides. She grew up reading science fiction in English and Danish due to her father's love for the genre. She has written multiple stories for anthologies edited by Eric Flint set in his Ring of Fire alternate history universe. Anette is a retired geologist and micropaleontologist. She is a church accountant and deacon, as well as a keen gardener and cook. She paints botanical illustrations to professional standards but, she claims, with far from professional speed.
