Anne Sinclair- Anne Sinclair is a French and American television host (and writer for Huffington Post), so I think it would be difficult to break into the market with this name.
Anne Penman- Screams pen name, and not in a good way.
Anne Seeley- Sounds a bit too close to Anne Silly. However, it is my favourite of the names you have, and I do see the appeal of the surname, it just sounds a bit too fluid (?) with Anne.
Anne Curtis- Anne Curtis is already a celebrity of sorts, so it would be hard to break into the market (particularly on the internet) with this name.
Anne Tahoe- Nobody really associated with this name, but it does feel a bit awkward to say.
Anne Steel- There has already been a famous writer / hymn writer named Anne Steele, so I wouldn't do this. Plus, most people immediately associate the last name Steel and writing with Danielle Steel, and I personally wouldn't want to try and counteract this image.
Maybe Anne Seal? Anne Clyde, Anne Flint, Anne Zinc, Anne Abbott, Anne Irving, Anne Quarry, Anne Tab, Anne Ivo?Mary Lucienne / Esther Mirabelle / Camellia Edie / Raphaela Mercy / Anouk Evangeline / Francesca Seraphim / Josephine Dove / Ida Annabelle / Shalom Odelia / Bethlehem Dominica / Lydia Tibeldie / Susanna Daisy / Jane Bloom / Willa Jessamine

Anne Sinclair: I feel like you need an initial between these to break up the shortness of it. E.G Anne F. Sinclair
Anne Penman: Anything with pen in it feels to cheesy for a pen name.
Anne Seeley: This is ok.
Anne Curtis: I hear 'anchor'.
Anne Tahoe: Not a fan of this.
Anne Steel: This is ok, but there's a character in '50 Shades of ****' called Ana Steel.
I like Anne Sinclair and Anne Seeley the best. Are you set on Anne? Anna Sinclair has a slightly better flow to it. Maybe try a longer surname?

I agree with renrose, I think it needs a longer last name to spark it up a bit.Mummy of Arthur Ash Genki - 25th November 2014 <3

Anne Sullivan? I'm not super up to date with celebrities, so if that's already someone's name *whoops*
As far as the ones you have go:
Anne Sinclair: I like the last name Sinclair a lot, but I personally don't like the first name Anne with it. I agree with renrose, an initial might help.
Anne Penman: I once again second everyone else's opinions. Seems cheesy for a pen name.
Anne Seeley: Eh. I don't know. It's okay.
Anne Curtis: This is my favorite.
Anne Tahoe: No.
Anne Steel: Not a super big fan of this either.“I read books when I was a kid, lots of books. Books always seemed like magic to me. They took you to the most amazing places. When I got older, I realized I couldn't find books that took me to all the places I wanted to go. To go to those places, I had to write some books myself.”
