Annemarie Hensley's inspiration for writing Freeman Out of Water came straight from her family! With her daughter, who is a published poet and her son who is a Whale enthusiast, she was excited to explore her creative side! After her Sister traveled across the country bringing her son a stuffed orca whale, an idea for a story was born. Annemarie lives in Indiana with her husband, three children and three cats. Annemarie hopes to one day meet a real orca whale!
