"Tomb of Truth" was born out of story-telling games played with my family after my husband and I traveled through China with our four- and six-year-old daughters.​ I have...

  • conquered arachnophobia in Australia;
  • survived angry rattlesnakes of South Texas;  
  • lived in a tee-pee in Canada;
  • laughed under water as I watched a fish sleep; 
  • saved my husband from losing his nose to a moray eel;
  • traveled with children of all ages and enjoyed it!

A Master's graduate of the University of Texas School of Journalism, I have written for fun my entire life. I am a member of Romance Writers of America, Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, and Writer's League of Texas.

And finally, no, Anz is not my real last name. While pen names can be useful for authors with throngs of fans, I have a pen name for a different reason. A writer needs a great story, but these days, a successful writer needs great marketing. Anz is a unique name at the top of any alphabetized list, is easy to say, and reminds me of a favorite country: Australia!

I love speaking to groups about TOMB OF TRUTH, where I got the idea for the story, sharing my own lessons about writing, searching for an agent and self-publishing. I have spoken to groups as small as 10 adults and as large as 150 children. Whatever your group's size or age, please email me your request to 

"Courtney spoke at my school this past week, and the 4th and 5th graders were spellbound - no exaggeration. I have been hosting authors, both local, and nationally-known, for over a decade, and Courtney's talk ranked among the best."
