Andrea Green Burton writes historical fiction, much of it set in the Midwest, where she was born and raised. She fell in love with history on a visit to the Paul Revere House in Boston in 1990 and has been compulsively (if not regularly) writing since she was nine years old. She can’t remember a time she didn’t want to be a historical novelist when she grew up.
Originally from southeast Michigan, she also spent 13 years in Ohio, and she doesn’t care about the rivalry between the two states; she thinks they are both incredible places to live. On her path to becoming a writer, Andrea earned a BA in History from Oakland University (Rochester, MI) and an MA in Public History from Wright State University (Dayton, OH), and she got married and had four kids. Before she landed her current dream job as Coordinator of Education and Volunteer Programs for her town’s municipal museums, she spent six years working as Adult Services Coordinator at a public library.
As a museum lover, Andrea gets the majority of her inspiration from visiting historic sites and houses. When she’s not writing, she loves to read, walk, bake, and try to keep up with her kids. She now lives in the mountains of southwest Virginia.
