About the author

A M Carley

Always an enthusiastic reader, as a young adult Anne fell in love with hot lead, publishing, and writing when she edited her high school newspaper. In college she instigated Dial a Bedtime Story, a low-tech effort to calm down distressed fellow students by reading them her original stories over the phone.

Her success as an independent arts consultant in New York City derived from her ability to craft agreements among artists, collectors, and arts institutions. She studied law at NYU in order to do this more thoroughly.

During law school, an article based on her research on conceptual and minimal art appeared in ArtForum magazine, which led to more speaking and writing opportunities on topics in the arts, law, and technology.

After moving from New York to Charlottesville, Virginia, Anne established a creative coaching practice, working with writers and other creatives. She co-founded a local writer group, BACCA Literary.

She has appeared at the Virginia Festival of the Book, the Virginia Writers Club Annual Symposium, and the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library. She is grateful to have been a fellow at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA) as a writer (2016) and composer (2008 and 2012). The FLOAT book was completed there.
