Brenda Drake, the youngest of three children, grew up an Air Force brat and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical. When Brenda’s not writing or doing the social media thing, she’s haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops or reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).

Writer's block, to me, means you need to step away and let the inspiration come to you. I write almost every day.(less)

ANALIESE RISING - Kirkus Review

Analiese Rising by Brenda Drake

"Drake writes from a first-person, present-tense perspective and imbues her narrator, Ana, with plenty of character...

An exuberant runaround, carried along by the heady rush of first love." ~Kirkus Review

“We each have an appointment with death. I’d rather die for a cause than die of old age never having done something important.”
Brenda Drake, Thief of Lies

“Sentinels are sort of like Mary, aren’t we?” His voice was quiet. “We’re alone in the world, taken from our true parents. I like to think of the libraries as our secret garden. Our escape.”
Brenda Drake, Thief of Lies

“The Coming is here, and it is our duty to protect against the evils that will follow. I am not sure what we face, but there is not another bunch I would want to go into battle with than this one.”
“Nor is there a leader I would rather follow than you,” Jaran said as he straightened. “I will fight until my last breath for all that is good.”
“As will I,” Lei said.
“And I,” Kale followed.
Demos smirked. “Such mush.”
Brenda Drake, Thief of Lies
