Anne Cartwright

Singer and Writer

Anne Cartwright is an author, ex-opera singer and confirmed Francophile.

Anne spent her formative years in the north of England until her career and marriage took her south and away from her Lancashire roots.

She studied opera at the Royal Northern College of Music and enjoyed a highly successful career as an opera singer, making soloist performances in the UK and across Europe.

Now retired, she lives in France with her musician husband, Colin Cartwright, and her experiences there have been the inspiration for her latest book, A Handful of Chestnuts, which is due to be published in autumn this year, 2017.
