For immediate release

The Trees Outside, new release from novelist Andrea N Carr
June 1st, 2015  on Amazon KDP
Often as human beings we find ourselves on the outside looking in on a given situation: a friend’s problems with work, the death of a distant relative, even watching police rush to a major car accident. However, one of the most difficult aspects of humanity is being able to look within ourselves and be honest about what we see there.

The Trees Outside is an introspective look at those forces affecting the character Angel Harper, from Andrea N. Carr’s début novel Family Tree. Here, she not only helps readers look into Angel’s life through her poetry and previously edited material, but she reveals the naked truth about her writing as a medium for self-expression.

The Trees Outside includes the narrator Angel’s poetry and inner monologues, which explore and illuminate how and why she makes the decisions she does. The novel affirms our common humanity and celebrates the beauty of language through its poetic prose. Also, it reminds us why we seek the answers to philosophical questions through literature. Because writing, and reading, can pull us out of our own thought patterns and cause us to examine and more deeply understand others’ feelings and ideas and aspects of our common human experience. This, in turn, allows for a deeper understanding of others and ourselves.

Andrea N Carr is an accomplished author/storyteller. She has been writing emotionally driven, self exploratory stories since 1999 from her homes in Orange County. Growing up in Huntington Beach, she later moved to Los Angeles, California after leaving a Mental Health Career, as a Psychiatric Technician for the State of CA. Miss Carr has the uncanny ability to weave words so cleverly and simply that her literary works create thought-provoking images both vivid and personal that the reader cannot help but be moved with “soul honesty.”
