Annie Boochever — Alaskan Author.

My books were inspired by real people, places, and events in Alaska:

Bristol Bay Summer

An Alaskan adventure novel published in 2014 by Alaska Northwest Books, won a Literary Classics award for best first novel and was a middle-grade selection for the Alaska State Battle of the Books reading motivation program. It is is based on my personal experiences as a single mom in a remote fish camp in Bristol Bay.

The story of a legendary Alaska Native woman written in collaboration with her only living child, Roy Peratrovich, Jr., now 84 years old. It is a picture biography for middle grade and young adult readers published by Snowy Owl Books, an imprint of the University of Alaska Press. It will be released January 15, 2019.
