Join Host Pam Kroskie and her guest Anne Heffron - Play Write and 

After teaching writing at San Jose State University for over fifteen years, Anne retired to work full time on screenplays with her writing partner, Antonia Bogdanovitch. In 2015, Phantom Halo was named New York Times Critics’ Pick and it won Best Screenplay and Best Picture at The New York International Film Festival.

The next year Anne packed up all her things, gave up her California apartment, and left for New York on a trip she called Write or Die. She said she was not coming back home until she had done the one thing she’d been wanting to do for over thirty years: write a book about adoption. Ninety-three days later, she had the manuscript for You Don’t Look Adopted. And the name of her birth father. 

She is currently writing The Unofficial Adoptees’ Handbook and teaches monthly Write or Die classes, where she inspires and guides others to discover ways to get their stories on paper.

You Don’t Look Adopted, which recently won Best of BellaOnline 2016, is available on Amazon.
