Meet Brynn Barineau
I’ve been a reader my whole life but only became serious about writing when I started blogging about my experiences as an American in Brazil shortly after arriving in 2006.
Then about a decade ago, I tried to find picture books in English about Brazil for my little Brazilian-American and came up with almost nothing. I expanded my search to chapter books, young adult and with growing disbelief I looked for any fiction book with a connection to Brazil.
My research made one thing clear. In the United States, it’s easier to find a book set in outer space than in Brazil.
Eventually she had a radical idea. Maybe she could write the book she wanted to find.
After nine years of writing, three polished novels, more than 150 query letters, two years out on submission to editors, Brynn’s first novel, Jaguars and Other Game was published in November 2022.
