Thursday Twitter Thursday: Anna Schmidt

Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account for Thursday’s Twitter Takeover. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week young adult author Anna Schmidt will be taking over our Twitter account.

Now retired and focused only on writing, Anna splits her time between Wisconsin and Florida. Having been raised in the hills of Appalachia in a town that is often not even a dot on the map, she went from being that small town country kid to being a big city adult — loving the noise and chaos and diversity of city life. But that small town girl is alive and well and has a tendency to show up in one character or another in her stories.

Anna’s books include historical fiction, novels, westerns, and more. Her most recent novel is The Winter Keeper. The novel is a coming-of-age story set in Yellowstone National Park during the 1930’s. The Winter Keeper is available NOW in e-book and print form on amazon.
