Brenda is unlike most authors since she only began writing 2009. She never wrote fan-fic, but has been an avid D&D player for over 40 years. Painting pictures and telling stories for gamers to see in their imaginations came naturally and now she does the same in her novels.
She is an author of USA Today, International Best Selling & Award-Winning novels. Her love for reading fantasy, paranormal, and contemporary erotic romance has allowed her to apply her imagination for the world to share.
Brenda was a member of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for 5 years and when Brenda is not writing; she lives and breathes in the Tampa Bay gay leather community. She was a member of the Tampa Leather Club for 5 years before they disbanded and the only associate member to receive an award (2011) for her dedication toward making the club events all they can be. In 2014, Brenda also received the award for Ms. Community Service 2015 from the Florida Puppy Contest organizers. In 2015, Brenda was again honored for her service to the community when she was pinned ‘Mama’s Tampa Wench’ by Sandy ‘Mama’ Reinhardt who has been an activist for over fifty years. Less than 2000 leather community members worldwide have received this honor and Brenda was pinned a second time in 2018 as Mama's FL Vacation. In Nov. 2015, she became (the first) Ms. Florida Leather n' Fetish Pride (2016) and in Jan. 2017, she purchased the weekend event that had been held in Florida annually until 2019.
Brenda frequently is asked to speak on panels about writing and BDSM/kink related topics or teach classes on Negotiation, Flogging, or Rope Bondage and has been a guest lecturer at USF on several occasions.
Brenda resides in Lakeland, Florida with her husband of 26+ years, 6 cats, and a turtle named Tammy (only the cats are hers). She is the mother of three beautiful daughters and a grandmother to eight.
