Annie Osborn was a dutiful, Christian wife and daughter and the mother of eight children. As a journalist in Australia she edited the woman's pages of the Age and the Leader : a weekly journal of news, politics, literature, and art in Melbourne, Victoria. She also edited the children's page of the Leader using the pseudonym of 'Cinderella'. Osborn also wrote regularly for the Presbyterian journal, The Messenger, and for the Australian Christian World. Her column in The Messenger was written under the pseudonym of 'The Minister's Wife' and greatly advanced religious journalism in Australia.
Osborn wrote children's readers that became so popular they were adopted in Australian schools and adapted for radio broadcasts. She left Australia in 1927 when her husband decided to persue clerical opportunities in North America. While in the United States, Annie Osborn was President of the Mount Vernon Federation of Christian Women.
