Anne Hawkinson was born in Duluth, Minnesota (USA).  The world's largest inland port became her "window to the world" when ships from around the globe crossed under the Aerial Bridge and docked in Lake Superior's harbor.  Years later she'd visit the countries that at one time existed only in her imagination.

Bedtime stories read by her father were a nighttime ritual - her favorite was The Teeny, Tiny Woman.  Because they lived near a zoo, she often fell asleep to the sound of roaring African lions.
