Annelies George was born in the Netherlands. After the gymnasium and a one-year course as an international secretary she started to work for a law firm, studying finance, management and law during the evening hours with the goal of becoming a lawyer herself. A move to a different town marked the start of a successful career in the international IT Finance world. She accepted a variety of EMEA and regional management and sales roles with Cisco, Microsoft and Hewlett Packard among other companies. Due to the intensity of the job and long working hours, she abandoned her plans for a law degree. Encouraged by two friends she resumed writing again at a later age, with the purpose of releasing a book detailing her personal adventures as a woman in a male-dominated business environment. Due to circumstances, she had to re-write the entire story. Frustrated, she stopped working on the book. Soon thereafter she spoke to a psychic with an extraordinary life story, which inspired her to start writing again. Encouraged by her father who passed away as a result of cancer, Annelies completed three of the five books in the Jessie Golden Series with part 1 (Quest to the Unknown) recently released. Annelies still lives in the Netherlands and is taking care of her mother with Alzheimer’s. She loves to paint and design necklaces when she is not writing. On occasion she likes to travel to discover new places and understand the different ways of living around the globe.
