As well as running her own blog, ‘Desperate Housepets’, Annaliese also writes articles about pet care for various journals, magazines and blogs, including Practice nurse journal, Scallymag magazine, HU17.net, small business expert (Australia), best pet jobs (Australia), The American Pet Magazine. She was previously called upon as an expert writer for publications such as Your cat magazine, Dogs today magazine (both national UK magazines) and written guest posts for Ocean Defender Hawaii (USA) about her travels to Hawaii, her love of the ocean, marine life and Travel Boldly (USA) – Hawaii travels.
Annaliese has written four UK veterinary text books and one pet care book, that are distributed worldwide and she has also produced a novella, which is a series of autobiographical/self help vignettes, designed to help others transform their lives.
Previously acting as a pet care author for Argos, she was also a ghost writer for pet companies in the USA and the UK.

After joining Stage 32, which is the definitive networking site for creatives of film, television and theatre, Annaliese wrote an inspiring guest blog about her recovery after a serious accident.
Annaliese qualified as a vet nurse and took extra training courses in nutrition and dentistry. She studied for her advanced vet nursing diploma in surgery and worked her way up to manage many veterinary practices. At the time only 200 nurses in the UK held this status. She trained many nurses and specialised in anesthesia, radiology and dental care/surgery, then started her own business, setting up a unique pet health spa, which she has now sold to write and create, which have always been her biggest ambitions.
In 2009, Annaliese was presented with The BVAVA (British Veterinary Nursing Association) award, for her contribution to the profession after opening the health spa.
In 2012, Annaliese was delighted to be presented with an award for inspiration and innovation. The award was created especially for Annaliese by Over The Counter (a publication and organisation in the pet/vet care industry). The award ceremony was interrupted as a surprise for Annaliese and the award was presented to her by Natasha Baker, a double gold Paralympian.
Authentic, inspirational and funny, Annaliese has led a challenging life, learning to walk again after a serious accident, living as a single parent and then sharing her astounding journey through her work, professionally and personally.
Her passions, aside from creating modern, glamorous pet care include: creativity, true stories, the young adult sector, inspiring others, world culture and travel. She has a keen interest and love of the ocean and marine life – particularly turtles and she supports awareness and organizations such as Leonardo DiCaprio’s foundation.
