Guest for Wed. April 28th Brenda Novak Award Winning Writer AND Dedidicated Fundraiser for Diabetes

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak's author career. "I caught my day-care provider drugging my children with cough syrup to get them to sleep while I was away," Brenda says. "It was then that I decided that I needed to do something from home."


What was that something? Brenda decided to write a book, and the rest is history. Now a New York Times and USA Today bestseller, Brenda is looking forward to a dynamic new romantic suspense trilogy due out next summer-WHITE HEAT (July 27, 2010), BODY HEAT (August 31, 2010), and KILLER HEAT (September 28, 2010). Many of her books have been designated a RT Book Review Magazine "Top Pick" and have gone on to place in contests such as the National Reader's Choice, the Bookseller's Best, The Write Touch Reader's Award, the Bookbuyer's Best and the Rita (trademark).


Brenda has given writing workshops at various RWA events, RT Book Review Magazine conventions, California Fiction Writer meetings, women's groups and library events. She's also done television and radio, including Fox 40 News, News 10, KCRA Weekend Morning News, GOOD DAY SACRAMENTO, GOOD DAY ARIZONA, Booklover TV and KFBK News Talk Radio.


Publisher's Weekly says Brenda's novels are "richly dramatic." According to The Library Journal, her work will appeal to those who like their romances with a "sophisticated touch." And RT Book Review Magazine says, "Brenda Novak skillfully blends richly developed characters and emotionally intense issues to create a powerful romance. This is an author destined for stardom."


For more about Brenda, visit, where you can find excerpts of her work, monthly prize drawings, book trailers and information about her annual on-line auction for diabetes research which she holds every May in honor of her son and the many others who face this terrible disease. To date, Brenda has raised over three-quarters of a million dollars for this cause.

I look forward to chatting with you!
