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, Esther, Mirabelle, Susanna, Camellia, Francesca, Dominica, Bellamy, Rose, Raphaela.
Amias, Moses, Bellamy, Bertie, Raphael, Abraham, Frank, George, Ezekiel.

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.”
