Life is messy and Brenda tries to reflect that in her stories while still leaving readers with a feeling of hope. She wants them to see themselves and the people they know in her characters.
You could say writing is in Brenda’s genes. Her paternal grandmother was a formidable diarist; her father was a journalist and poet; her sister and cousin are both published authors; even her son has shown a talent for putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) to tell awesome stories. So, it came as no surprise to anyone when Brenda returned to her love of fiction after more than 20 years in the world of corporate communications–although some might argue there was plenty of opportunity for fiction-writing there, too.
A fan of many genres, Brenda finds it hard to stay within the publishing industry’s prescribed boxes. Whether it’s historical mystery, romantic suspense or women’s fiction, her greatest joy is writing about memorable characters with compelling stories.
