About the event
Teri M Brown wanted to be a writer when she was just fouryears old. However, she laughs and says she also wanted to be a brain surgeon and an Olympic Ice Skater. Nevertheless, the desire to write never fully left her. She began her writing careerhelping small businesses with their written content and even wrote several nonfiction self-help books dealing with real estate and finance along the way. But it wasn’t until she got out of a long-term emotionally abusive marriage that she finally began to dabble in fiction. After winning the First Annual Anita Bloom Ornoff Award for Inspirational Short Story in 2017 for a piece about her grandfather, she began writing in earnest.Although she had several completed manuscripts,Teri still didn’t believe in herself. That all changed after an epic adventure. She met Bruce, the man she would marry in 2019, and the two of them rode across the United States from the coast of Oregon to Washington, DC on a tandem bicycle. At the end of those 3,102 miles (4,992 km), Teri was a different person. She realized that she could achieve anything if she set her mind to it. So, she got her manuscript, Sunflowers Beneath the Snow, into the hands of Atmosphere Press, and her debut novel about three generations of Ukrainian women launched in January 2022, just three weeks before the current Ukrainian crisis.Since then, she hasn’t looked back.Teri’s second novel, An Enemy Like Me, launches on January 24, 2023. An Enemy Like Me is a WWII historical fiction that focuses on a first-generation German-American who becomes an American soldier. However, instead of fighting the Japanese as he expected, he finds himself fighting Germans –those more like him than different from him. Readerssee how he handles this angst from his own viewpoint, his wife’s point of view, and that of his son (both as a 4-year-old left behind and as an adult reflecting on the past).
