Notebook and Pen


Annette Austin is a self-published author of four novels in the acclaimed The James Saga series, ‘The Fall of the House of James’, ‘Always A Slave', ‘A Slave’s Vow’ and ‘Betrayal of Love’ and her first novel spent some time at the Number 1 spot on Amazon (History of Antebellum U.S. Chart.) All four of the books in The James Saga have garnered five-star reviews on Amazon.


Before she embarked on a writing career, Annette predominantly had a career in finance. Whilst she achieved some success, her ambition was to become a full-time author. After she had a startling dream in December 2012, it gave her the impetus to start writing her first novel, ‘The Fall of the House of James.’ Following a long personal struggle, the book was finally released in June 2018. Since then, she has published three more books in The James Saga. Annette is hoping to publish several more in the series. Currently, she is editing her fifth novel, ‘Between Love and War’. Annette has always been fascinated by history including the more brutal and controversial aspects which many people are unwilling to discuss, hence this was a factor in setting the novels during the time of slavery.

Away from writing, Annette loves to read, exercise, especially yoga, sings loudly to 1980’s pop music and is a sports enthusiast (watching, not taking part.)
