Grew Up… in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She’s always loved to bake, and opened up her own bakery, Cake Baby, with her (now ex) boyfriend. Unfortunately, Annie’s business just failed, leaving her in debt, alone, and back at square one.
Living… her worst nightmare. After her boyfriend left her when the business crumbled, Annie was forced to move into an apartment with a very strange roommate and his even stranger and invasive sister. Brynn often gets into Annie’s private things, even reading her diary on the pretext that she thought it was just, “a very sad, handwritten book.”
Profession… jewelry store clerk. To make ends meet, Annie was forced to take a dead-end job, something that she’s not proud of admitting to her successful friends. She often takes out her cynicism about romance on customers. As she tells one happy couple shopping for an engagement ring: “You guys love each other, huh? Aww, that’s sweet… that will go away.”
Interests… her best friend Lillian, who’s been her only source of comfort in these rough times. When the newly-engaged Lillian asks Annie to be her maid of honor, Annie panics— she doesn’t know the first thing about event-planning or organizing, but she wants to make sure that everything goes right for her best friend.
Relationship Status… dating – or, more accurately, sleeping with – a narcissistic flake named Ted. Annie wants a knight in shining armor to whisk her away and solve all her problems, which Ted is anything but.
Challenge… preventing the snobby and wealthy Helen Harris III from hijacking the maid of honor role. Annie is Lillian’s best friend, a role that Helen desperately wants to occupy. While every aspect of Annie’s life is a struggle, the perfect Helen seems to navigate life’s troubles with ease. Annie can’t stand to be outshone by her and will do anything to keep the top spot as the bride’s BFF.
Personality… cynical, tired, and world-weary. It seems like Annie’s life has gone just about as poorly as possible. The only upside to being so beaten down is that it makes even the smallest victories even more significant. Upon seeing Helen cry, Annie says, “It’s the first time I’ve ever seen you look ugly, and that makes me kind of happy.”
