About this author

A resident of Nunavut in Arctic Canada, Norma Budden makes her home with her three children and grandson.

In addition to writing, she works as an Administration Manager for The Northwest Company.

Norma enjoys reading whenever she gets the opportunity, though she spends time sewing, baking/cooking and taking photos whenever the opportunities present themselves.

Norma wishes she could travel every couple of months but realizes it's not possible. However, given time, she hopes to be able to meet many of the people who read and enjoy her books.

Picture I look forward to getting up each morning to see the blessings a day has in store. By nightfall, I look forward to going to bed, to do a little reading so I can unwind at the end of the day.


I look forward to working but look forward to my days off so I can write, bake, sew, play music, hang out with family/friends, whatever happens to be the current mood/necessity.

I look forward to summer vaca... Read more of this blog post »

4 chapters   —   updated Nov 13, 2012 08:12PM
Description: Coming Unglued is Kelly's story, a woman who had it all but lost everything she valued in the space of a few moments, even her virginity which was taken by force, resulting in a pregnancy. Advance the calendar a few years and the most unexpected of encounters happened: Kelly came face-to-face with an apologetic rapist who turned out not to be the monster she presumed him to be. A story of love and loss and the ultimate degradation which comes when trapped in a life wrought with spousal abuse. Coming Unglued is sure to bring tears to the eyes of every man and woman who reads it as they put themselves into another's shoes or relive nightmares from their past. In spite of the tears and ensuing anger, Coming Unglued is also a story about finding hope and healing in the midst of the pain life brings.

The story was engaging - the subject unlike any other I've read, in terms of a relationship existing between a doctor and his patient.

From the onset, it seemed as though a whirlwind romance had ensued, with all of the wrong criteria in place. It is...more

“Demonstrate love in everything you do; as you grow old, the love you've shown to others will be directed towards you.”
Norma Budden

“Demonstrate love in everything you do; as you grow old, the love you've shown to others will be directed towards you.”
Norma Budden

“I have a history of making decisions very quickly about men. I have always fallen in love fast and without measuring risks. I have a tendency not only to see the best in everyone, but to assume that everyone is emotionally capable of reaching his highest potential. I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a man, rather than with the man himself, and I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the man to ascend to his own greatness. Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

“If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.”
Nora Roberts

“Men go to far greater lengths to avoid what they fear than to obtain what they desire.”
Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code

“Don't ever discount the wonder of your tears. They can be healing waters and a stream of joy. Sometimes they are the best words the heart can speak.”
Wm. Paul Young, The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity
