Bree Housley grew up in the pocket-sized town of Walcott, Iowa, where she started as a Subway Sandwich Artist and worked her way up to a very prestigious waitressing job at the "World's Largest Truckstop." From there, she spent over a decade as an advertising copywriter. She waxed poetic about everything from Pepsi to incontinence. She is currently a freelance writer in Chicago. Bree's first book, "We Hope You Like This Song," was inspired by her childhood best friend, Shelly (Warner) Bridgewater. They were like Cagney & Lacey without all that fighting crime stuff.

We Hope You Like This Song by Bree Housley
"I have never written a review on Goodreads before. This book is for anyone who has had a best friend, period. At points, I was snorting with laughter, and others, "twisted face, sputtering tears". A must read. Like now- go buy the book."
We Hope You Like This Song by Bree Housley
"I LOVED this book, although I may be a little biased because I also loved Shelly. I hail from the same small town as the author, so many of the stories struck a chord with me. Bree came up with a beautiful way to honor her friendship with Shelly,..." Read more of this review »
