Anna Guerin

I was thrilled to receive an email from Heather Johnson, whose website Madame Guerin explores in detail the life and work of this remarkable Frenchwoman who, along with the American Moina Michael, ensured that the remembrance poppy has become one of the most powerful symbols of our time.

It was the stories of these two women, along with the work of the real life Poppy Factory, still going in Richmond, near London, today, which inspired my third novel, The Poppy Factory.

It’s great to hear from readers who share my passions and interests!
