Brenda writes health articles for Woman's World and First for Women magazines, and she covers everything from herbal remedies to medical breakthroughs. Brenda is also a proud member of the Humor Writers of America (yep, HA) and the Romance Writers of America, and she writes humor and romantic comedy, plus fiction for kids and young adults.

Brenda lives in Ontario, Canada, with her seven kids, two cats, and a big, goofy Great Dane. Brenda worked as a science teacher until she realized that writing was a lot more fun--and having a home office meant she could work in her pajamas.

Stunning Scientific Breakthroughs That Could Change Your Life. Or Not.





I never miss the Ig Nobel Awards ceremonies. Well, okay, I never miss reading about them. Getting to the Ig Nobels (which are held at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts) would require a passport. My passport expired years ago, and border guards get surly if you offer them cookies instead of proper documentation.




This year’s Ig Nobel ceremony was held on September 12 (a big shout-out to

James Moushon Hi.

I’d like to introduce myself. Besides being the author of the Jonathon Stones Mystery Series, I am a strong Author's Advocate. I write articles highlighting other authors books. Also, I do author interviews and post them on my blogs. Thanks for friending me.

Kristin! It's so nice to hear from you. So, you've been off social media for 18 months and your world hasn't fallen apart...I know a few teens who truly believe that's impossible :-) I love the Roald Dahl quote on your website. I hope your paintings turns out as spectacular as your books - you're a wonderful writer :-)


Kristin Butcher Hi Brenda,
Hope all is well in your world. I haven't fallen off the face of the earth; just left the social network. (It's been a year and a half already.) It wasn't a a healthy fit for me. I have to say, I do miss your wacky sense of humour though. New book coming out next spring. In the meantime, I'm honing my painting skills. Who knows? Perhaps I can become an illustrator. To catch up on my activity or to get in touch, please visit me at my website: www.kristinbutcher.com
