It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak’s career as a bestselling author—she caught her day-care provider drugging her children with cough syrup to get them to sleep all day. That was when Brenda decided she needed to quit her job as a loan officer and help make a living from home.
“When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book,” Brenda says. But she sold that book, and the rest is history. Her novels have made the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists and won many awards, including five Rita nominations, the Book Buyer’s Best, the Book Seller’s Best and the National Reader’s Choice Award.

Brenda Novak is giving away one of her Professional Reader Boxes, which includes an autographed copy of her brand new release, FACE OFF, an autographed copy of Nancy Herkness’s SECOND TIME AROUND, two sterling silver charms, a darling heart-shaped ceramic jewelry dish, an autographed print of Yolanda Gliko’s oil painting (of books) inspired by Van Gogh and a fun surprise item!

But bestselling authors will deal it a sweet blow in May when their SWEET TALK Boxed Set of contemporary romances goes up for sale on Brenda Novak’s Online Auction for Diabetes Research. With a foreword by Robyn Carr, the special… Read More

I’m a city girl now, but recently I spent time with a friend of my mother’s, Janet, and her son, Bill. These are my horse people from my past. Janet is 92, a retired school teacher. When she got older… Read More
