    Anita Richmond Bunkley

Anita Bunkley’s twenty-nine year literary career has produced novels that introduce readers to unique periods of history from the Afro-centric point of view.  Reviewers and fans refer to her novels as sweeping sagas that are extremely entertaining—embraced for their historical accuracy, strong romantic themes, and vivid characterizations of people of color in periods of history not widely showcased in literary works.   


Recognized by the African American Literature Book Club as one of the "Fifty Favorite Authors of the 20th Century," Anita is an NAACP IMAGE AWARD nominee, a member of the TEXAS INSTITUTE OF LETTERS, winner of Favorite Author Award from Go On Girl Book Club, and the recipient of a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times magazine.


Published by major houses such as Penguin USA, Harper Collins, Harlequin, and Kensington, many of her novels, anthologies, and romances have appeared in Literary Guild, Doubleday Book Club, Black Expressions Book Club, and on Essence Magazine's Black Board: African American Best-seller list in both hardcover and paperback.


A native of Columbus, Ohio, Anita lives in Cypress, TX with her husband, Crawford.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Mount Union College, Alliance, Ohio.
