Brenda is a dynamic speaker and facilitator.


She has been writing diaries, poetry and articles for many years. Writing has been a passion but raising a family put her talent on hold. Now that the children and grandchildren have grown, she is again enthusiastically embracing her talent. 


Discovering diaries and photographs in the Australian War Memorial was a particularly exciting find. After ten years of research in Forbes, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra and Glasgow, Brenda wanted to tell the story of ordinary people who lived extraordinary lives.  


This is her first novel.  She and husband Peter co-authored Raising Difficult Children to assist parents help their children reach full potential. Brenda has been married to Peter since 1966.  They have two children and four grandchildren.
