Anne Broyles is the author of SHY MAMA’S HALLOWEEN (Tilbury House, 2000), which was named a Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People for 2001 and received a Teachers' Choice 2002 Award from Learning Magazine. Her newest release is PRISCILLA AND THE HOLLYHOCKS (Charlesbridge, 2008). Poet Nikki Giovanni said, "Priscilla and the Hollyhocks tells a story too often ignored or overlooked - a story of how the west was not won but captured. Reading about Priscilla's remarkable life makes all our hearts a bit warmer while filling our heads with a much-needed piece of American history."PRISCILLA was named one of Bank Street College's Best Children's Books of the Year, was chosen as a Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People, and is one of five picture books chosen for the Massachusetts Book Awards recommended reading list.
Anne’s a desert rat from Tucson who spent twenty-five years in southern California before moving to New England. She’s traded boogie-boarding for kayaking, and coyotes and dolphins for foxes and White-tailed Deer. She’s working towards being a locovore, but so far hasn’t given up New Zealand kiwis and California avocados.
