Minnesota author Anne Greenwood Brown’s young adult trilogy about three menacing mermaids who live in Lake Superior with their slightly more compassionate brother was snapped up by Random House. Told from the brother’s perspective, “Lies Beneath,” the first book in the trilogy, has just been released. On Writers Voices, Anne explains how music helped her write from a teen boy’s perspective, how Michael Hauge’s teachings aided her plotting, and how she wrote, produced, and directed her own book trailer to increase sales.
