I'm the author of three books: Your Robot Dog Will Die, Save The Enemy, and Tropical Depression.

Your Robot Dog Will Die is my newest book. It's a YA novel coming out in April of 2018, to be published by Soho Teen.

BUY: Indiebound - Amazon - Barnes & Noble 

This book is set at Dog Island, a sanctuary for the last dogs on earth (as well as lots of robot dogs) - this is where 17-year-old Nano Miller has lived for her whole life, thinking it's paradise. When she discovers Dog Island's dark secrets, Nano has to set out to save her home, her family, and the dogs - all while falling in love for the very first time.

I hope Robot Dog will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you want to go adopt a dog (a real dog, and also possibly a robot dog). 

I'm thrilled to talk about the book and anything else - seriously! - so please feel free to email me at aringreenwood@gmail.com if you'd like to chat. 

For more business-oriented conversations: My literary agent is Emily Sylvan Kim, of Prospect Agency

Praise for Your Robot Dog Will Die

"Our most anticipated indie YA."
—Barnes & Noble Teen Blog

"The novel explores the gap between human intention and impact . . . A provocative reflection on humanity's increasingly damaging effects on the natural world." 
—Kirkus Reviews 

"There is no putting down this fun, quirky read." 
—The New Barker 

“Tacitly challenges our notions of kindness and our world view of bioethics . . . The way she weaves this delightfully heartbreaking, comically sobering dystopian story sets her work apart from most dystopian YA.”
—Creative Loafing Tampa

"A wild little tale that dances on the edge of your heartstrings . . . This book had me overcome with feelings of hope, anguish, fear, and inspiration. Arin's distinct ability to capture the world that we are careening toward if we are not careful left me feverishly turning pages in hopes that there is a way to save us all from such a bleak future, a world without our best furry friends. I could not put this book down!"
—Deidre Franklin, founder of Pinups for Pit Bulls and author of The Pit Bull Life: A Dog Lover's Companion

"Satisfying and wistful, with an ending that will thrill every animal rescuer out there. Impossible to put down."

—Susan Houser, Out the Front Door blog

"Funny, fresh, and self-assured, Your Robot Dog Will Die is a charming, gripping speculative look at the darker side of animal activism. Read this book! Your human brain will thank you."
