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)

“You ever want me to show you what it's like to have a man in your bed, you know where to find me.”
Brenda Novak, When Snow Falls

“Never miss a good chance to shut up.”
Brenda Novak, Coulda Been a Cowboy

“...some small part of her had reacted to the passion inside him. Despite his role as a titled gentleman, there seemed to be a facet inside him that society could not tame, something stimulating yet dangerous, like standing at the edge of a cliff and feeling the mysterious, subtle pull to jump.”
Brenda Novak, Through the Smoke

Brenda Novak I'm so happy that you enjoy them, Sharon. Thanks for your kind words--and your support of my work. Have you read THE SECRET SISTER yet?


Brenda Novak You are so welcome. I'm thrilled to have you as a reader. Which is your favorite Novak book so far?


message 8: by Jazz

Jazz Feylynn Brenda, Thanks for friending me. I enjoy your books so much :D


Sharon Thank you for accepting my friend request! Your books are so sweet and heart-wrenching, and I cannot wait to read your 10th book for Whiskey Creek!

P.S. My favorite character was Phoenix. Her story was literally one of the most heart-breaking stories I had ever read, and I was amazed by her resilience and her kindness when she had every right to be bitter. She was truly inspiring. Thank you!


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


Mindy (Naughty Book Snitch) Brenda wrote: "Thanks, Mindy. Definitely tell your book club I said hello. How many people are in 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?


Mindy (Naughty Book Snitch) Oh, thank you so much for adding me. Ive got book club tonight and I cant wait to gush about you :)


Brenda Novak You bet! Thanks for friending me, too!
