The Writescast Network welcomes author Brenda Marie Smith to a forthcoming episode of the r.r. campbell writescast!
From the author—
Winner of the Southern Fried Karma 2018 Novel Contest for If Darkness Takes Us, Brenda Marie Smith studied fiction in the UCLA Writers Program. Born and raised
in Oklahoma City, she was part of the back-to-the-land movement, living off the grid in
the Arkansas Ozark Mountains, and then joining the Farm—an off-grid, vegan hippie
community, based in Tennessee—where her sons were delivered by midwives.
Brenda has lived in Austin, Texas since 1980, where she managed student housing co-
ops near the University of Texas, manufactured tofu salads, produced concerts, and
was a peace and justice activist. If Darkness Takes Us is her second novel. Her first,
Something Radiates, is a paranormal romantic thriller.
Brenda and her husband own and reside in a grid-connected, solar-powered home in
South Austin. They have five grown sons, two grandkids, and a self-assured kitty cat.
Brenda’s episode about the character-plot connection will debut December 6th, 2019.
