Anne Greenwood Brown wrote her first book at age five. It was titled “Agatha the Witch.” Her dad published the story on his office copier, and she sold copies door to door for a dime apiece so she could buy chewing gum. Since then, she’s written several YA novels, as well as fiction for older readers (under a pen name), creative non-fiction that she’s performed live with “Listen To Your Mother”, non-fiction on writing craft for Writer Unboxed, not to mention some really horrible poetry that lives in journals under her bed. Anne graduated from Stillwater High School, St. Olaf College, and William Mitchell law school.
She also has three hilarious children.
Cold Hard Truth
Emmie O’Brien is a former good girl now on the fringe. She spent a crazy year involved with Nick, her mom’s drug dealer; after her arrest, she was lucky to go back to her old life. But she’s haunted by the choices she made—first, to be with Nick, and then later, to testify against him. Max Shepherd is a senior varsity hockey player with serious anger issues. His grief over the death of his girlfriend causes him to see injustice wherever he looks. When they meet in community service, Max is drawn to Emmie’s calm energy, but Emmie knows better than to get too close to anyone. When friends of Nick show up seeking revenge, Emmie is forced to come to terms with her past, while Max has to control his protective instincts. They must trust one another, especially when Emmie’s situation takes a dangerous turn.
