Annie Greet de Boissière studied for her Doctor of Philosophy at The Flinders University of South Australia, where she taught English and edited a reviews journal. Her doctoral studies into the poetry of Derek Walcott centred on the political and social effects of his use of metaphor. She resigned from Flinders in 1995 and moved to Melbourne where she married Trinidadian-Australian novelist Ralph de Boissière, continuing to write reviews of post-colonial literature for The Age and other publications, and working with her husband on his latest writing while also completing her book on travel in the Caribbean, Be not afeard — three islands. She is currently working on a book with the working title 'The Sine Qua Non - Recycled Stardust', an investigation into the linguistic bases of theism and missed alternative linguistic developments.
