Anne Greenwood Brown’s latest Young Adult novel, COLD HARD TRUTH (Albert Whitman), released April 2018. In this gritty love story, two teens who are court-ordered to participate in community work service fall in love while helping each other banish the very real and dangerous demons of their past. Her dark, paranormal mermaid trilogy LIES BENEATH, DEEP BETRAYAL, and PROMISE BOUND (Random House/ Delacorte) is set in the cold waters of Lake Superior, this Young Adult series is the story of revenge, forgiveness, and ultimately love and family. USA Today calls it “scary and spooky;” School Library Journal called it “fast paced and filled with twisty turns;” Kirkus Reviews called the finale “sophisticated” and “good entertainment.”
She is also the co-author of GIRL LAST SEEN (Albert Whitman), a contemporary Young Adult thriller about a missing YouTube sensation and plenty of suspects. Kirkus Reviews called GIRL LAST SEEN “endlessly twisty” and said that “this deliberate head trip will keep readers guessing until the very end. The kind of dark, wild ride that begs to be read in a single sitting.” School Library Journal called it “a sexy, fascinating, fast-paced, and darkly dynamic mystery.” Booklist called it “exhilarating and filled with twists and turns.”
In addition to Anne’s YA novels, she also writes adult romance for Entangled Publishing under her pen name A. S. Green (check out SUMMER GIRL and WILD CHILD (coming June 2018)).
She has also published creative nonfiction, performed as part of the spoken-word tour, “Listen to Your Mother,” and contributed a chapter on “plotting” to the Writer’s Digest book AUTHOR UNBOXED. She is a guest blogger on the popular writer’s website, Writer Unboxed, where she has received great response to her articles on writing first drafts and the art of revision (KICKING OUT A FAST FIRST DRAFT post).
If she’s not at home in Minnesota with her husband and their three above-average children, she’s probably on Lake Superior, waiting for something amazing to flash by.
