Annelie Basson was born on a farm near Grootfontein near the village of Uniondale (Cape Province). She holds a teaching degree in music (piano) from the University of South Africa (1986).
She is the author of fifty short stories and novels published in magazines Huisgenoot, Sarie and Rooi Rose. She writes a regular column in Volksblad and Die Burger.
In November 2010, in an interview with the newspaper Rapport, she caused controversy by declaring that she did not like black people or understand them. Following the statements, the newspaper Die Burger decided to withdraw her column. She refused to retract her remarks and to condemn them. She just clarify she loved black people and it was "perhaps unfair" to put them all in the same category.
