Anne Louise Grimm—a Federally licensed Extra Class amateur radio operator with Volunteer Examiner certification, KA7TON—is a member of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists. A 7th degree member of the Grange, she belongs to the auxilliary of VFW Post # 968 in Raymond, Washington where her late father and brother were both members. As member of the American Radio Relay League, she can be reached as firstname.lastname@example.org and she writes on many subjects, currently emailing the free monthly newsletters SPARKS for WARC—KD7KAJ (Willapa Amateur Radio Club) and PROSPECT for Willapa Chapter DAWN, Domestic Abuse Women’s Net. She also emails the weekly Grimmly Reflecting column to subscribers. Much of what she writes with fictitious names and wildly impossible plot, covers underlying historical facts tied to famous names, as recognizeable by those who have traveled there or lived it.
Born in the United States of bilingual parents, Anne lived overseas for over 17 years, and has traveled extensively in countries of North and Central America. English is her second language, learned in public school in the rural Pacific Northwest United States. In adulthood she learned enough Spanish to communicate—though often on reflection having made embarrassingly ludicrous mistakes.
Anne now lives in an apartment near sea level not far from the Pacific Ocean, with two faux fur cats and a stuffed owl . . . none of which need feeding. Where she does her own HTML coding of http://www.willapabay.org/~anne/annepers.htm and her living companions are a banana plant and aloe vera, from which increase she keeps trying to give away starts.
