Anne Harvey

Anne L Harvey is passionate about the past. She has written many articles published in national social and family history magazines. In 2014, she self-published her debut novel A Suitable Young Man on Amazon Kindle and Createspace and has had considerable sales success. Bittersweet Flight is the follow-up though it can be read as a stand-alone novel.

Film Stars, Hair-Dos And Reminiscences

Film Stars, Hair-Dos And Reminiscences

Navy Blue Knickers, Gym Slips and School Dinners - A Review Of My Grammar School

It’s been a while since I posted a memoir-based blog (apart from last month’s ‘Stranded in New York City’), the last one being ‘Four Schools in One Term’ so I thought it was about time I continued the story with my time at Farnworth Grammar School.
