Anna Durand is a bestselling, multi-award-winning author of contemporary and paranormal romance. Her books have earned bestseller status on every major retailer and wonderful reviews from readers around the world. But that’s the boring spiel. Here are some really cool things you want to know about Anna!

Born on Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, Anna grew up moving here, there, and everywhere thanks to her dad’s job as an instructor pilot. She’s lived in Texas (twice), Mississippi, California (twice), Michigan (twice), and Alaska—and now Ohio.


As for her writing, Anna has always made up stories in her head, but she didn’t write them down until her teen years. Those first awful books went into the trash can a few years later, though she learned a lot from those stories. Eventually, she would pen her first romance novel, the paranormal romance Willpower, and she’s never looked back since.


Want even more details about Anna? Get access to her extended bio when you subscribe to her newsletter and download the free bonus ebook, Hot Scots Confidential. You’ll also get hot deleted scenes, character interviews, fun facts, and more – including a bonus audiobook chapter performed by Shane East!

Hi. I'm Tim Paige, and I'd love to be your narrator.

I'm a father to two awesome little boys (and a 4 lb toy poodle). We're a little too obsessed with Disney (#Disnerds) and Marvel Comics.

I spent a large part of my life as a touring musician, playing on some of the biggest stages in the world (including on MTV's TRL, back when that was a thing). 

I also practiced and taught marketing (mostly at software startups) so I've got tech expertise, as well as experience with entrepreneurship, startups, and motivation.

I'm a bit obsessed with weight lifting and nutrition, so you'll often find me studying scientific papers on how different foods effect the human body... and then at the free weights at the gym to test how they impact my strength.

Rom Coms are my JAM, so if something has a HEA, count me in. 

I've not only narrated best-selling books, but have also voiced national commercials, tv show promos, trailers, and more. Thanks for stopping in.
