Thursday's Author: Brenda Novak


                                            Buy "Hanover House" on Amazon: click here!

This weeks feature author is Brenda Novak. A friend led me to her site, so thank you Tania Ellison. After checking out Brenda's page I see there are a lots of great books there for you to read. She has much to choose from but you'll probably want to read them all. What made me want to feature her this week? First of all this book seems to be my kind of read. I also notice a lot of great comments on her page for her work. Then I noticed that she personally answered the comments left for her. I don't know about you but when an author takes the time to do that it means something to me. It means they care about the people who support their work. In turn I do what I can to help support that author. You can buy the books, but let the author know how you feel about their work.

Brenda's work falls along the lines of mystery and romantic suspense. I look forward to reading her books. Brenda's start in the author world is one that I hope as a parent you never have to face. Be sure and read her background and bio information. Her books have been on the New York Times and USA Today best sellers lists. I love finding a new to me author with a great list to choose from. I'm happy to share my find with you!

After reading the synopsis for this book I think you'll find its well worth checking out.

from Amazon:

Welcome to Hanover House…. 

Psychiatrist Evelyn Talbot has dedicated her life to solving the mysteries of the antisocial mind. Why do psychopaths act as they do? How do they come to be? Why don’t they feel any remorse for the suffering they cause? And are there better ways of spotting and stopping them? 

After having been kidnapped, tortured and left for dead when she was just a teenager—by her high school boyfriend—she’s determined to understand how someone she trusted so much could turn on her. So she’s established a revolutionary new medical health center in the remote town of Hilltop, Alaska, where she studies the worst of the worst. 

But not everyone in Hilltop is excited to have Hanover House and its many serial killers in the area. Alaskan State Trooper, Sergeant Amarok, is one of them. And yet he can’t help feeling bad about what Evelyn has been through. He’s even attracted to her. Which is partly why he worries. 

He knows what could happen if only one little thing goes wrong... 

I also found this little gold nugget too that really interests me:

From Amazon:  Biography
Brenda Novak Bio

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 four Rita nominations, the Book Buyer's Best, the Book Seller's Best and the National Reader's Choice Award.

Brenda and her husband, Ted, live in Sacramento and are proud parents of five children--three girls and two boys. When she's not spending time with her family or writing, Brenda is usually raising funds for diabetes research (her youngest son has this disease). So far, Brenda has raised $2.4 million.
