Anne Moffa grew up in the forests of southwestern Pennsylvania. She spent much of her childhood playing in castles of hemlock and spruce, reading under cathedral vaults of wild grapevines, and drawing on every available surface. The nearby Fort Ligonier peaked her interest in history at an early age. Eventually, she went to Allegheny College for Studio Art, Creative Writing, and History, much to the horror of practical people everywhere. She also continued to study French, to sing, and to play the piano, organ, and French horn.
Currently, Anne makes her home in Pittsburgh, PA, where she divides her scant free time between writing and illustrating. Her dream is to illustrate children's books, and to write books and poetry for all ages. She is the artist of a weekly webcomic, The Tempest, which she illustrates traditionally in pen & ink and watercolor. Her poetry has been published in the Loyalhanna Review and, many years ago, in the Girl Scouts of the USA yearly calendar. Starting in January, Anne will be teaching English abroad in Madrid, Spain. She plans on further travels to take her to France. And after that, who knows?
