Get to Know Andrea

Andrea Green

Andrea was born and raised in Michigan until she moved to Ohio, where she spent the next 13 years. After a bit of time in the mountains of southwest Virginia, she is back in Ohio and happily writing historical fiction set in the Midwest. She has been compulsively (if not regularly) writing since she was nine years old, completing her first novella at age 17 and her first novel at age 33. (They’re both terrible, don’t ask her if you can read them!) In the meantime, she went to college (BA History, Oakland University) and grad school (MA Public History, Wright State University) and started a family. She works as an Assistant Public Service Manager at the library in her favorite Ohio city, which is basically her unicorn job! Not only has she developed a passion for library work and connecting patrons with the stories and services they need, she also credits library work with “forcing the issue” with her writing and helping her to learn about and adapt to the lifestyle that was required of being a writer.
