Excerpt from the Daily Mail:
News of Brown’s marriage was first announced in a statement from Atria Books earlier this week about the 31-year-old’s forthcoming novel.
Yona Deshommes, associate director of publicity for Atria, an arm of Simon & Schuster, said Brown is looking forward to ‘starting her life as a recently married woman’. She did not say who Brown married or when the wedding took place.
The soon-to-be author will go by ‘Cyntoia Brown-Long’ when her book, ‘Free Cyntoia: My Search for Redemption in the American Prison System‘, hits the shelves on October 15.
The book is described as a ‘coming-of-age memoir set against the shocking backdrop of a life behind bars’.
Brown was released from the Tennessee Prison for Women early Wednesday morning after serving 15 years of a life sentence for murdering a man who bought her for sex when she was 16 years old.
