Freshman Fifteens Interview With Anna

Stacy Lee from Freshman Fifteens interview Anna about Learning Not To Drown. Check it out here!

"When I started working on Learning Not to Drown, I knew I wanted to write about the reality of growing up with a sibling in prison. Addiction, family secrets and betrayal were all an important part of Clare’s story and are issues that many people with incarcerated family members deal with on a daily basis. They all exist together in her story, so I can’t say that one speaks to me more than the others."

You can also enter to win a signed copy at the end of the interview.
