Anne Ursu is an American author based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. One of her works, Breadcrumbs, a middle grade novel published by Walden Pond Press, was released September 27, 2011. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," Breadcrumbs is a story of the struggle to hold on, and of the things we leave behind.

Ursu has also written a trilogy for middle grade readers, Cronus Chronicles, (published by Atheneum), involving two cousins' adventures in the realms of Greek mythology. The individual titles are The Shadow Thieves, The Siren Song, and The Immortal Fire.

Formerly, Ursu was a popular unofficial blogger for the Minnesota Twins baseball team. On that blog www.bat-girl.com, Ursu adopted the persona of Batgirl. Batgirl used a unique idiom and developed a site-specific Twins mythology that fans carry on. She announced her retirement from blogging on May 23, 2007, but began using Twitter under the name TwinsBatgirl on September 10, 2010. She has published another book in 2013 called The Real Boy
