Annabel Venning graduated in History and Politics from Durham University, before embarking on a career as a journalist. She has written for numerous magazines and newspapers, including the Daily Telegraph, the Daily Mail and the Times. She is now a frequent contributor to the Mail on Sunday, for which she covers a wide variety of historical topics. Additionally, she advises the Books Department of the Daily Mail on the serialization and abridgement of non-fiction books, including many works of history.
Annabel’s first book, the critically-acclaimed Following the Drum: The Lives of Army Wives and Daughters, painted a portrait of the women who followed and supported the British Army across four centuries of war, and was published by Headline in 2005.
On a personal front, Annabel is the daughter of an army officer and the granddaughter of two army officers, all of whom served in the Gurkhas. Born in Hong Kong, she has also lived in Brunei and Germany, and has now finally settled in the Chalke Valley in Wiltshire with her two children, two dogs, and one husband, in the form of the author and journalist, Guy Walters.
