Annie Groves


Annie Groves was the creation of the much-loved writer, Penny Halsall, who died in 2011. Penny was born and lived in the north-west of England all of her life and the Annie Groves novels drew on her family’s history, picked up from listening to her grandmother’s stories as a child.
Penny’s legacy of heart-warming and uplifting novels lives on through writers Jenny Shaw - who knew Penny personally for many years.
