About Author: Anna Blanch

Description

She has had scholarly & freelance articles published in a wide range of publications including Englewood Review of Books, Australian Folklore, and Case Magazine and she often talks about literature and theology at academic conferences. With degrees from the Australian National University and Baylor University, Anna is presently in her final year of a PhD at the Institute of Theology, Imagination and the Arts, at the University of St Andrews, Scotland where she is also a tutor. Her academic research focuses both on the work of iconic British author, E.Nesbit (author of Railway Children) and the role of literature in spiritual formation. She finds photography, enjoying her environment and its fruits, and being in community bring her joy.

She likes to ask people what's been inspiring them lately, because the answers inspire her and she loves hearing people's stories and she's find that this is a great way to get people talking.
