Anna Neff is a 2009 Vol State graduate. Last semester, I took advantage of the resources found in the TRIO program. I needed a little help with Spanish and I was happy when I met Anna. I was suprised to find out that she is also an author. Her first book is called "Jadzya’s Life." It's in the final stages of editing before hitting the printing press.
Anna has long been a fan of Anne Rice, Stephen King, V.C. Andrews and other writers in the suspense / horror / fantasy genre.
She said the book has dark overtones and interaction with the spirit world, “I try to share how to deal with the pain of living in a dysfunctional family, through the eyes of a young girl growing up.”
“As I got further along in college I wanted to let people know that things may seem hopeless but if your mind is in the right place and you have a lot of perseverance eventually you will succeed," she said.
Anna says she is already working on her next project in the series of books. As a student and a writer I am always excited to hear the success stories of former students. I look forward to reading the novel when it comes out. Here is a link to Anna’s web site.
