Annette Oppenlander

The author of four novels for teens and fans of historical fiction, Annette Oppenlander (annetteoppenlander.com) loves telling stories about young guys thrown into interesting and challenging historical settings. She was inspired to write the "Escape from the Past" trilogy after watching her two boys grow into avid gamers, visiting the ruins of Castle Hanstein in Germany and New Mexico.

"Nearly every place holds some kind of secret, something that makes history come alive. When we scrutinize people and places closely, history is no longer a date or number, it turns into a story."

Annette holds an MBA in marketing and market research and lives with her husband and mutt, Mocha, in Bloomington, Ind.
