"She claimed she loved the camera, its warmth, its familiarity. She responded to its naked glare, its slavish attention to every expression of her face and body, with the kind of immediacy a trusted lover could expect." -- Anne Edwards

Anne Edwards (born August 20, 1927, Port Chester, New York, USA) is an author best known for her biographies of celebrities that include Princess Diana, Maria Callas, Judy Garland, Katharine Hepburn, Vivien Leigh, Margaret Mitchell, Ronald Reagan, Barbra Streisand, Shirley Temple and Countess Sonya Tolstoy. She attended University of California, Los Angeles (1943-46) and Southern Methodist University (1947-48). A child performer on stage and radio, she began her writing career as a junior writer at MGM in 1944 and became a noted Hollywood screenwriter and television writer during the late 1940s and early 1950s. She lived in the UK and Europe from the mid 1950s until 1972. Her film credits include co-writing the first draft of the screenplay for the film Funny Girl (1968) starring Barbra Streisand. She wrote her first novel, the best-selling The Survivors, in 1968 and subsequently (as of 2008) has written seven novels, fifteen biographies, three children's books, and (with her husband -- composer-musicologist-pianist Stephen Citron)-- an autobiography. She lived in Connecticut, USA in 1997. She is a past president of the Authors Guild and currently serves on its Board of Directors. Her collection of literary manuscripts, papers, and related materials is now part of the Special Collections Department of the Charles E. Young Research Library at UCLA, where she has taught writing. She currently resides in Beverly Hills, California.

In an interview for Publishers Weekly, Edwards said, "An idea hits me, then I develop the story or, in the case of a biography, think of a person who exemplifies that theme. Vivien [Leigh], Judy [Garland] and Sonya [Tolstoy] were vastly interesting people and symbolic of certain things: Judy, the exploitation of a woman; Vivien, somebody who suffered from manic-depression; Sonya, an intelligent woman subjugated to a man who used her, drained her, made a villain of her."
