Brenda Youngerman is a single mother who raised her 3 children in southern California. She has first hand knowledge of what emotional trauma can do to a family as she was the product of a broken home.

I was the youngest member in a very large family and always felt like I was on the outside looking in. That is not an enviable position as a child but a perfect position to be as an author. I write "Fiction With a Purpose," novels about real people in real life situations. I try to paint a picture of life as it is to give my readers that ability to see situations from a different point of view. My goal as an author is to have ONE reader pick up a novel and see a similarity in his or her life and see an opportunity to do something to make their

Ps Brittain Hi Brenda. I'm brand new here - not sure if this is where I should comment, but I wanted to thank you for being my friend. You're the first and I love your writing - well you know that.


Brenda Youngerman Bobbie,
You never have to thank me for a friendship.....I certainly hope not anyway. I am a firm believer in all things happen for a reason. I have no idea why or how you ended up in my path for Hidden Truths....but you did....and here you are again....so perhaps we are meant to be along this journey together.

I fought the Goodreads pull for a very long time. I'm not fighting it anymore and perhaps your 'group' has made that happen, and I should be thanking you!

Brenda
