Anne Hepple Dickinson, née Batty, (16 October 1877 – 10 November 1959) wrote romantic novels under the pseudonym Anne Hepple. She was the first editor of The Woman's Magazine in London from 1931 to 1934.



Anne Hepple Batty was born on 16 October 1877 in Widdrington, Northumberland, England. She married William Bain Dickinson at Berwick Parish Church in 1903, and had a son and a daughter. They lived in Castle Terrace, Berwick-upon-Tweed, England, and other locations in the Berwickshire area.

In the 1930s, Anne moved to London to become editor of The Woman's Magazine, a monthly publication around thirty pages in length, which cost a shilling. Her name was prominently displayed on the front cover of the magazine under the title. She answered readers’ questions in the column “Letters Grave and Gay”, and in 1933 and 1934 wrote an editorial page. The magazine mixed fiction with practical articles on dress making, cooking, decorating, travel, and so on. A number of her short stories appeared in the magazine, and some of her novels were serialized in the magazine before being published in book form.

Anne Hepple Dickinson died at her daughter's house in Kendal, Westmorland, England, on 10 November 1959.


Her books were published, under the name "Anne Hepple", after her children were grown. Her works include:
