She is the author of Anatomies: A Novella and Stories (Picador USA, 2000) and Everyday Acts & Small Subversions: Women Reinventing Family, Community and Home (The Eighth Mountain Press, 1994).

            Anndee’s articles, essays and book reviews have appeared in O, The Oprah Magazine, Working Mother, Child, Redbook, Cooking Light, Philadelphia Magazine and OUT. She has written extensively about the changing facets of the family, including adoption, foster care, assisted reproduction and same-sex parenting. She has also written about spinach hoagies, urban chickens and a tattoo artist with a degree in fine arts.

            Anndee has received awards for fiction and creative non-fiction from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Astraea Foundation and the Leeway Foundation. Twice, her short stories have been featured in InterAct Theatre’s Writing Aloud program in Philadelphia, and her first book, Everyday Acts & Small Subversions, was named one of the 100 Most Important Feminist Books of the 20th Century by Sojourner magazine.

            Since 1992 Anndee has been a teaching artist in schools and community settings, helping children, teens and adults find their voices in poetry and creative non-fiction. She is a coordinator with People and Stories—Gente y Cuentos, a program that connects literature to life by bringing short-story discussions to prisons, drug treatment centers and libraries nationwide.

Anndee has also worked as a counselor for homeless teens, coordinator of a women’s writing workshop, a theater critic and a bartender.
