Anne Fletcher is a writer and historian. She has a successful career in heritage and has worked at some of the most exciting historic sites in the country including Hampton Court Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Bletchley Park and Tower Bridge.
She is the great-great-great niece of Joseph Hobson Jagger, ‘the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo’ and the subject of her first book From the Mill to Monte Carlo. Her search for his story started with only a photograph, a newspaper article and the lyrics of the famous song.
Her latest book, Widows of the Ice, is a biography of the women widowed by Scott’s fatal Anatarctic expedition and explores how even the best known stories can change when the women are put back into it.
Anne is also a member of the Biographers’ Club.
