Writer of kids’ books, climate fiction, & stories of

Anneliese writes short stories, novels and flash fiction in Richmond, BC, Boulder, CO, and points between on the train.  After teaching Italian (and then ‘Green Italian’, incorporating sustainability) at UBC, she now works at an extreme weather shelter when not riding the rails or locked down above the border. More and more of her work is set in the near future in a climate-changed world, aka cli-fi [SEE On Cli-Fi –  http://laughinginthelanguage.com/my-cli-fi-manifesto/ ]

A Pushcart Prize nominee and Bread Loaf Scholar, she completed her BA in French and Italian at Middlebury, and an MA in Italian and MFA in Creative Writing at UBC. Her work has been published by Solsticebosque,  Literary Imagination, Enizagam, The Lascaux Review, Stone Canoe, The Toronto Star, and Moon Willow Press, and recognized by The WriterGlimmer Train, Ruminate, The Writers’ Union of Canada, Cutthroat, New Millennium Writings, Hidden River Arts, the Bath Short Story Award, the Surrey International Writers’ Conference, and the Alpine Fellowship.

Shortlisted for the 2016 HarperCollins/UBC Best New Fiction Award, she has also received the Stone Canoe Galson Prize for Fiction, the ALSCW Meringoff Fiction Award and the Enizagam Literary Award in Fiction.
