We have with us today the author of Aurelia and Academy 7, Anne Osterlund!
Anne Osterlund, author of Aurelia andAcademy 7, grew up in the sunshine of eastern Oregon and earned a BA from Whitworth College, where she majored in elementary education with Spanish and English teaching fields. She lives in a cute little yellow house with her best feline friend, Dance, and her own library of young adult books. She also teaches sixth grade in Oregon and enjoys immersing her students in language, literature, and imagination. Her third novel, Exile, is coming out in April, and she has dreams of many more in the future.
Her favorite bio (from the point of view of her cats) is on her website. www.anneosterlund.com.
My next book, Exile, the sequel to Aurelia, is coming out this April. And here’s the pitch:
Exiled. From the weight of others’ expectations, the responsibilities of being crown princess, and the pressure to marry, AURELIA is finally free to travel the kingdom and meet the people of Tyralt. If only ROBERT, her expedition guide, would stop pestering her about her safety and just kiss her. But then their journey erupts in a fiery conflagration, and with both of their lives and the fate of the kingdom at stake, she and Robert must determine whether they have the strength, and the will, to complete their mission. And face the darker side of exile.
Robert, Aurelia, and I hope you’ll all join us on their expedition!
