Instructors: Anne Eliot, Lana Williams
Anne Eliot

Anne Eliot is the bestselling author of six (and counting) young adult and new adult books. She’s a Colorado College graduate, and had a fun web-programming career before her writing 'Cinderella Story' began. After years of trying to get published, her breakout novel, Almost, became an Amazon Reader’s Choice Award winner and a top selling book for 2012. Since then all of her young adult books and audio books have been on the Amazon teens top 100 lists. Her agent has sold her work into Europe for traditional print deals and translations, so when not running around the world giving away books (that does happen—and she can’t believe it) she lives in Crested Butte part-time and Colorado Springs part-time. (All until that last kid heads off to college, and then she’s never going to leave the Gunnison valley ever again). She’s a proud member of Romance Writer’s of America as well as the Society for Children’s Writer’s and Illustrators, and she loves her husband, kids, dogs, shoveling snow and Crested Butte so very much.
