Anne Sebba was born in London and went to London University where I read History, specialising in 20th century French History. She then lived in Rome where she worked as a foreign correspondent for Reuters followed by a couple of years in New York, where she started my freelance career.

She has written nine non- fiction books for adults since then mostly biographies of iconic women such as Mother Teresa, Laura Ashley and Jennie Churchill, Winston’s American Wife. In 2011, she published That Woman a life of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor based on a hidden archive of letters that she discovered in an attic and in 2016 Les Parisiennes: How the Women of Paris Lived, Loved and Died in the 1940’s (Weidenfeld & Nicolson UK) or Les Parisiennes How the Women of Paris Lived, Loved and Died under the Nazi Occupation.
