The Making of Nebraska Brown
The last thing eighteen-year-old Ann Leigh remembers is running from her boyfriend in a thick Nebraska cornfield. This morning she’s staring down a cool Italian sunrise, an entire continent from the life she once knew. The events of the eighteen months in between have inexplicably gone missing from her memory.
All at once she’s living with Tommy, an attractive, young foreigner asking for her continued love. Though he’s vaguely familiar, she recalls a boy named Shane in America who she reluctantly agreed to marry. Juggling a new world while her old one is still M.I.A is difficult enough without the terrifying movie scenes spinning a dizzy loop in her mind: glimpses of a devastating house fire, a romance gone wrong, an unplanned pregnancy, and a fractured family – each claiming to be part of who she once was – a girl and a past somehow discarded.
Ann Leigh must collect the pieces of herself to become whole again, but she doesn’t know who to trust especially when Tommy’s lies become too obvious to ignore. And above all, her heart aches to discover what became of the child she may or may not have given birth to.
The Making of Nebraska Brown tells the story of one girl’s coming apart from the inside and the great lengths she’ll go to reclaim herself and find her way home.
About the Author:
As a young girl growing up on Long Island, Louise spent most of her allowance on Nancy Drew mysteries. She soon realized that one day, she might have a story of her own to tell. Maybe even more than one story.
Although motherhood took center stage in her life for many years, Louise went back to college after her children were older to study that which she knew deep down was her true passion; creative writing. She soon began to craft a collection of short stories which were published in the inspirational online magazine, FAITH HOPE AND FICTION.
Shortly thereafter, her first novel,Wishless, a contemporary YA, was penned and ultimately released in 2011.
After having her next novel, The Making of Nebraska Brown, picked up by Immortal Ink Publishing, Louise was invited to join their publishing team, where she is now working in editing, marketing and acquisitions.
In the coming months Louise will have her two-book collection of short stories (Petit Fleurs and Vignettes) released through Immortal Ink. She also has two more full-length novels currently in various phases of production.
