Ann Kramer


Welcome to my website. I am a freelance writer and historian, working from home. I have had 50 books published and have contributed to others. My books are non-fiction, as opposed to novels, and I have written for children and adults: at the moment I am commissioned mainly to write for adults. History is my subject, and women’s history in particular. I’ve written on topics ranging from Victorians and suffragettes through to human rights and land girls. Recently I have written about women’s lives during wartime, including Women Wartime Spies (Pen & Sword, 2011) and about conscientious objectors in the First and Second World Wars — Refusing to Kill, (2013) and A Determined Resistance (2014),a fascinating, and much neglected subject. As well as writing, I tutor women’s studies and have appeared on TV and radio.
