Visit Guest Author Trisha Lynn Halaas at Ann Chamberlin’s Book Shop Saturday & Sunday, Mar. 18 & 19. Booth #171.
Trisha Lynn Halaas was a born writer and as a child, dubbed the ‘family reporter’. A true writer, she has always been in love with the story. Forever a dreamer, an idea for her first fantasy fiction trilogy set in a dystopian post-apocalyptic future formed in her mind and the words incessantly begged to be put to paper. So she did, and she went a step further. After losing her beloved brother, Shane, to the ravages of addiction, she wanted to draw attention to the subject. She meshed her love of the story with her love for her brother, creating their own unique presentation of addiction awareness. Her debut novel explores timely themes, addiction, and grief in a new and unique way. She settled in Arizona, where she currently resides with her dog, Chloe.
