A Taste Test Blog Tour - ME!!

Welcome to day four of A Taste Test Blog Tour. The author I’d like to introduce today is Me: Brenda Howson. Co-author of Forbidden Territory.

I'm going to tell you about myself:

I’m a full time mum with two little munchkins (just today my 1 year old started walking - very exciting) and we live in New Zealand with my husband, who is also my high school sweetheart. Before kids I worked in IT and Graphic Design, which I also loved.

I think of myself as a very creative person, whether I’m knitting, sewing, making cards, or writing. I love it all. I wish there were more hours in the day so I could do them all.

Since I was a child I’ve written stories. When I was a teen it was all about romance and I would craft out scenes where girl meets boy, or boy kisses girl. But as an adult my best friend challenged me to write an entire book and I was hooked. This was something I wanted to do more of and get better at.

Even as a mum, I still crave stories about first love and teen adventures (some of us just never grow up) so that’s what I mainly write and read about.

And what I love about writing: 

I love that I can make up a world that is not mine. I can be someone else (through my characters), experience other things and fall in love again. I love to disappear into a story. Love, love, love it.

Happy touring everyone :)

Check back on Monday when we ask LM Preston what she does when she's not writing!
