About this author

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak’s bestselling author career.

“I caught my day-care provider drugging my children with cough syrup and Tylenol to get them to sleep while I was away,” Brenda says. “It was then that I decided that I needed to do something from home.”

However, writing was the last profession she expected to undertake. In fact, Brenda swears she didn’t have a creative bone in her body. In school, math and science were her best subjects, and when it came time to pick a major in college, she chose business.

Hi Auburn--

I'm sorry you're so upset by the subplot in COME HOME TO ME. Chey was trying to protect her husband. She acted out of love, to give him a baby with his own DNA without him having to know that it wasn't his. Aaron did it for the same reason--love for his proud brother. Dylan would never leave Chey, even if he finds out, because he would understand that her intentions were pure. It isn't as if she slept with his brother. She merely used the closest DNA she could find to give him what he most wanted, without him having to live with the reality. I thought it would be an interesting way to give Chey and Dylan some more face time, and I can assure you that all is not as it seems and will work out in a future book.(less)

The subplot will change as we go through the series--but not until we get to the Amos Brothers again. Not everyone does everything right, but as long as their intentions are good, I think they are still a good person. (less)

Brenda Novak I can't wait, either! Yahoo! Thanks for recommending it!

There's about 15 of us. We all read what we want and we all talk about what we like, love and didn't like. It's a lot of fun and a really good way to get book recommendations. Through the Smoke has been added to all their reading lists. It's such a great price on Amazon that you can't pass it up.I can't wait to for them to read it.


Brenda Novak Thanks, Mindy. Definitely tell your book club I said hello. How many people are in it?
