Brenda Corey Dunne grew up in rural New Brunswick, Canada. She originally trained as a physiotherapist and worked several years as a Physiotherapy Officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force before meeting the love of her life and taking her release.

She completed her first full length manuscript in 2008 as a bucket-list item and since then she has self-published a work of YA historical fiction (TREASURE IN THE FLAME). DEPENDENT, an adult contemporary fiction, was published by Jolly Fish Press in July of 2014. SKIN, a YA paranormal, was published in June of 2016.

I move a lot...my husband is an Air Force Officer and that means frequent relocations. There are still challenges...but all I need is a laptop and an active imagination and I can continue to work. I can create worlds based on these new locations, I can form characters based on people I meet and I can express my emotions in written form no matter where I am. SKIN's main character, Ocean, has facets taken from previous moves, and one of my currently unpublished manuscripts (tentatively called The Other Side of Home) is also a move-related story.

I love my portable career. (less)

Ah, the first week of September.

Kids are back to school, days are getting shorter, and yes, that wonderful concoction we call the Pumpkin Spice Latte has made it's reappearance at Starbucks.

Oh, yeah....After an amazing (and exhausting) few months of fun and excitement, it's time for moms (and dads) everywhere to sit down, grab their PSL, reflect on their summer bucket lists, reorganize their... Read more of this blog post »

I didn't expect much from the book. I went in thinking this was about mermaids and adolescence. This book surprised me in a few ways. It brought to light a few issues that most authors would not touch...." Read more of this review »

Heartwarming, funny and a very sad at the same time. Deals with some very serious questions. Very much enjoyed reading this one.
