Anniken Davenport writes from Savannah, Georgia and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. A freelance journalist specializing in legal topics, she has a knack for turning dense legal materials into readable prose. She holds a dual concentration fiction and nonfiction MA in writing from Johns Hopkins and a JD from Penn State.
She has written for numerous publishers and publications, producing weekly and monthly newsletters, manuals and books. She teaches business law online to undergraduates and is the author of a popular paralegal textbook on criminal law. Davenport also conducts frequent webinars on human resource topics.
For a short time, she occupied Flannery O’Connor’s Savannah basement – until asthma forced her out. Born in Oslo post-war, she was raised on stories of the Nazi occupation and remains fascinated by Edvard Munch paintings. She also co-founded e-publisher Valhalla Press and edits the literary journal Ragnarok.
