Bio: Brandi's mother introduced her to the world of fiction when she bought Brandi her first Nancy Drew book and later let her raid her own stockpile of romance novels. That started a collection of books, which continues to grow to this day, much to her husband's amusement. Or is that dismay?
Brandi's father inspired a fascination for imaginative and entertaining stories, and the drive to go for her dreams. Both her parents, married more than 40 years ago, and her paternal grandparents, married 75 years?yes, 75 years & counting!?are the reasons Brandi is a hopeless romantic.
She began writing at age 2 with a piece of chalk. Her first written word was TREE, and she has no idea why her family actually remembers that? Since then, she embarked on a writing career that led to an award-winning stint as a television crime reporter, and later as an editor for the computer broadcasting industry.
Meanwhile, her private book collection continued to grow, driven to new heights by her love of romantic fiction. Her first manuscript began with a simple idea and quickly grew into a 98,000 word Time Travel Romance. That manuscript won 3rd place in the first contest she entered. She's been putting her ideas to paper ever since.
Brandi lives with her husband, son, a salt & pepper schnauzer who believes he owns the place, and a tabby cat who knows she does.
