After a couple university degrees and some world travel, Brenda Benny settled down to a life of helping others communicate their stories. One day she decided to start writing her own.

When she’s not shining in the glow of a computer screen, she can be found warming up in the sun after a freezing cold lake swim, chilling with friends at an outdoor music festival, skate skiing on a sunny day, or hiking to the summit because it’s there. She believes that dark chocolate and tortilla chips are two overlooked food groups.

Brenda is lucky enough to live amongst the awesome lakes and forests of Muskoka Ontario Canada with her husband, two sons, and their guinea pig named Chocolate.

That Secret You Keep is her debut novel.

I'm hoping to publish it in the early Spring. It's a YA romance - a little heavier in topic than That Secret You Keep. It's an alternating NOW/THEN timeline. Can't wait for readers to get their hands on it!(less)

The narrator of this book is absolutely engaging. What a great character! The storyline and detail of NYC during WWII was incredibly interesting, and really entertaining. At about the 75% mark, I began to wonder where exactly the story was headed and ...more

Gripping, informative, insightful, cutting, and funny. Only Trevor Noah could make you laugh while reading his essays about his life growing up in South Africa. I learned so much more about SA pre/post Apartheid. Noah is a gifted storyteller.

The (horrible) premise and plot to this book made it hard to listen to/read - but the relationships between the characters and the wonderful characters in the book were highlights. I really didn't like the ending - which is why I only gave it 3 stars ...more
