Maree Anderson | Author
Maree Anderson writes paranormal romance, fantasy, and young adult books. She lives in beautiful New Zealand, home of hobbits, elves, and kiwis – both the fruit and the two-legged flightless variety.
Prior to publication Maree entered the RWNZ Clendon Award with a manuscript about cursed crystal warriors imprisoned in their namesake crystals, and winning this award was the catalyst that convinced her to chase her dream of becoming a published author. That manuscript was eventually published as The Crystal Warrior, the first book in her popular Crystal Warriors paranormal romance series. Her first published novel for young adults, Freaks of Greenfield High, featuring teenage cyborg Jay, has over two million reads on Wattpad and was optioned for TV. To the disappointment of Jay’s many fans, Freaks didn’t make it to the small screen, but it was a wild ride while it lasted! Another young adult book, Liminal, featuring a teenager who can phase in and out of the real world, was an Apple Books Best Book of August in 2013.
Maree is a current member of Romance Writers of New Zealand, and 2007 received the RWNZ Founder’s Award for her services to Romance Writers of New Zealand. Currently she is working on a fifth Crystal Warrior book, all the while planning a fourth Freaks story.
