Anne Charnock's debut novel, A Calculated Life, was nominated for the 2013 Philip K Dick Award and The 2013 Kitschies Golden Tentacle Award (Debut Novel). Her writing career began in journalism. Her articles appeared in the Guardian, New Scientist, International Herald Tribune, and Geographical. She was educated at the University of East Anglia, where she studied environmental sciences, and at the Manchester School of Art. She travelled widely as a foreign correspondent and spent a year trekking through Egypt, Sudan, and Kenya.
In her fine art practice, she tried to answer the questions: What is it to be human? What is it to be a machine? Ultimately she decided to write fiction as another route to finding answers.
Anne is an active blogger and reviews fiction for the online magazine Strange Horizons. She contributes exhibition reviews and book recommendations to the Huffington Post. She splits her time between London and Chester and, whenever possible, she and her husband, Garry, take off in their little campervan traveling as far as the Anti-Atlas Mountains in southern Morocco.
