Tricia Brown

Alaskan author Tricia Brown has written more than two dozen books, including nine children's picture books, nearly all of them on Alaska subjects. Tricia drove up the Alaska Highway from the Midwest in 1978 and wandered the state, writing for newspapers in Fairbanks and Anchorage, and serving as editor of Alaskamagazine before entering book publishing in the late 1990s. She is a former acquisitions editor for Alaska Northwest Books and West Winds Press. Editing credits include dozens of print and/or enhanced e-books on dog mushing, Alaska Native cultures, Alaska travel and the frontier lifestyle. In addition, national publishers have sought her help to develop their books on gardening, self-help, autobiography and other genre. Tricia travels often and is a popular speaker in schools, libraries and events in Alaska as well as the Lower 48. Her multi-media presentations, which include lessons on Alaska natural history and culture, receive high praise from educators and parents. She loves to get kids excited about reading, writing and art. Tricia and her husband make their home in Anchorage with two Golden Retrievers named for Alaskan rivers: Kvichak and Willow.
