Anne spent her childhood on a farm between Camperdown and Derrinallum in Victoria’s Western District. After years of travel and varied work, she now lives only 40 kms from what was her childhood home.
She and her husband, Steve Lamb run Macqueens Funerals from Camperdown and Terang. They live above their funeral business in a rambling old art deco home which has, most importantly, a room in which to write. The yard rambles too, around dogs and chooks, ancient garden beds and fruit trees, and a couple of strategically placed tables.
Not so far from Terang is the south-west coast which has become not just a get-away place for Anne and Steve but a source of inspiration and creativity.
