Two-and-a-half years ago I launched a personal blog about my expat experiences in the Netherlands. The most difficult part was finding a name. I was hoping for a name that would encapsulate the many rich experiences I was having on my transition experience in a new culture and climate. But when it comes down to it, simplicity can sometimes really be the right choice, thus I went with Kristin in Holland. Afterall, my name is Kristin and I’m living in Holland.
Today, I am happy to unveil the title of my debut novel: Green. Yep, that’s it–Green.
Green, a debut novel by Kristin Anderson, coming to you through an online portal of your choice this November 16th, 2013.
Ellie Ashburn has come a long way from her poor, rural upbringing: she has an upwardly mobile career, great friends and access to culture and consumerism denied to her in her youth. Although she loves the fast-paced life of Los Angeles, she can’t stand the fast-paced men.
Just when she’s about to throw in the towel on dating, she meets Jake Tillerman, an environmental activist. Although the attraction between them is sizzling, their lifestyles could not be more opposite. As Ellie embarks into his eco-friendly world, she begins to question the very things she holds dear. When presented with a seemingly irresolvable conflict in their beliefs, both Jake and Ellie must decide if it will tear them apart or transform their budding romance into a lifelong love.
