About Me


This the website of USA Today bestselling and Alfie award winning writer Annie Bellet. I am the author of multiple ongoing novel and novella series and my short fiction has appeared in over two dozen magazines and anthologies.

When I’m not writing, I am either reading or playing video games. I’m a giant nerd and love everything from Magic the Gathering to Dungeons and Dragons (or these days, Pathfinder) to Skyrim, Final Fantasy, and Borderlands.  I’m also a tattoo addict and just added a Witchblade gauntlet to my collection.  Like I said, giant nerd. My books tend to reflect my love of gaming, fantasy, space ships, and epic battles, because I believe in only writing the kinds of books I would want to read.

My super-not-so-sekrit thriller pen name is Anne Baines. Find that book by clicking the shiny cover or going to Anne Baines’ website here:



Here is my standard bio if needed:

Annie Bellet is the USA Today bestselling author of The Twenty-Sided Sorceress, Pyrrh Considerable Crimes Division, and the Gryphonpike Chronicles series. She holds a BA in English and a BA in Medieval Studies and thus can speak a smattering of useful languages such as Anglo-Saxon and Medieval Welsh.

Her interests besides writing include rock climbing, reading, horse-back riding, video games, comic books, table-top RPGs and many other nerdy pursuits.  She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and a very demanding Bengal cat.
