Full-time web developer and passionate writer of “dashing swordsmen and scheming spies”, to use her own words, Anne Lyle is the latest addition to the Angry Robot Books crew.

Her debut novel The Alchemist of Souls, part of the Night’s Masque trilogy, is coming out later this year in March and promises to be a downright cracker. The sequel, The Merchant of Dreams, will be coming out next year.

Anne was kind enough to do an interview with us for the site, so let’s see how it all went down!
