Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, she has lived in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Washington, D.C., New York City, and Cambridge, London, and East Sussex, England. Her essays on literature, music, books, and culture have appeared for the past twenty years in books, critical editions, magazines, and journals including The New York Times, Hot Press, The Spectator, and The Times Literary Supplement. Anne Margaret has degrees in American history and English literature from Harvard (A.B.), Georgetown (M.A.), and Princeton (Ph.D). She also has a J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law. As a graduate student at Princeton in 1996, she gave the keynote lecture at the F. Scott Fitzgerald Centenary Conference held at his alma mater, and has published extensively on his work, and on American Modernism, since. She writes about music as often as she can.


Her edition of Olivia Shakespear’s forgotten fin-de-siècle novella Beauty's Hour: A Phantasy was published by Valancourt in 2015, and her bestselling edition of the last complete short stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald, I’d Die For You And Other Lost Stories, was published by Scribner / Simon & Schuster in 2017. As of 2019, it has been translated into 14 languages. In spring 2017, Daniel taught the first course at a New York university in the combined arts and letters of Bob Dylan. She is currently at work on a novel set in the movie and music businesses in Los Angeles, and a book about Fitzgerald.

Anne Margaret lives in the Catskills with her husband and two adorable dogs.
