About this author

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.
