Anne Hotta has published nonfiction in journals, newspapers, and in book form in Australia, Japan, and the USA. As a recent but devoted writer of short stories, she revels in this demanding but highly rewarding genre. She writes stories showing people—women, men, eastern, and western—living imperfect, ordinary lives but at the same time, all of them manifesting extraordinary qualities.
Anne is Australian but has lived in Tokyo and New York. She currently lives in Melbourne, Australia, with her Japanese husband, planning visits to her children living abroad and enjoying the richness of inner city living. She is a secondary school teacher and loves reading, yoga, singing, and cinema.
