Brynne Barnes

Children's Author

Since Brynne Barnes was a child, she was determined to fly; reading and writing has always made her feel like she could. In classrooms all over the country -- and the world -- she likes to remind young readers that they, too, have wings.

Her debut book, Colors of Me (Sleeping Bear Press), is a 2012 Gelett Burgess Award Winner, a 2012 Friends of American Writers Literary Award Winner, and an Award-Winning Finalist in the Hardcover Fiction Category of the "2011 Best Books" Awards sponsored by USA Book News. Brynne’s most recently-released picture book, the “clever, magical” 2016 ABC Best Book for Young Readers, Books Do Not Have Wings (Sleeping Bear Press), is available now, and stay tuned for the third, in the wings!
