Brenda Vicars has worked in Texas public education for many years. Her jobs have included teaching, serving as a principal, and directing student support programs. For three years, she also taught college English to prison inmates.

She entered education because she felt called to teach, but her students taught her the biggest lesson: the playing field is not even for all kids. Through her work, she became increasingly compelled to bring their unheard voices to the page. The heartbeat of her fiction emanates from the courage and resiliency of her students.

Brenda’s hobbies include reading, making things out of re-purposed wood, pulling weeds in the garden, and going to Zumba classes.

I have completed a draft of POLARITY IN LOVE, and I've set it aside to work on another project. I find if I shelf a draft for a while, I'm much better at revising when I return to it.
Good luck to you, Erica, and thank you for your support!(less)

By the time I finished POLARITY IN MOTION, Ethan and Polarity had matured, their needs were more complex, and they were ready for greater risks. They walked out of the first book and straight into the next one. I hope it will be out before the end of this year.
Thank you for your kind words! They mean more than I can say!(less)

Brenda Vicars, Polarity in Motion

“Ethan put his hands on either side of my face and looked into my eyes. “Are you okay?”
“Yes, I am.”
“What are you thinking?” he asked as he lowered his hands from my face.
“The truth was there all along, and I didn’t see it.”

Brenda Vicars, Polarity in Motion

“I tore the curtain down and roared, “I see inequity.”
But countless veils, shifting and sheer, deftly blinded me.
So I, pumped with pride, still failed to see the way I see.
Veils, unseen and unnamed,
Will unremoved remain.”
Brenda Vicars, Polarity in Motion
