Hello! I'm Brenda Minton, wife, mother, Sunday school teacher, cook, housekeeper... And I write for Harlequin Love Inspired.
This is where I tell about me, and try to make a pretty normal life sound interesting. I live in the Ozarks with my husband, five children still at home, two dogs, a cat, a few stray raccoons, and laundry that multiplies when the door is closed.
I've been married thirty-one years. My husband and I are best friends and I think that makes all the difference. We go on regular dates and in the summer you can find us on the front porch drinking coffee and talking. When we say we love the nightlife we mean: night life. A summer night with a clear sky, coyotes howling, the occasional yip of a fox and the screech of an owl in the woods.
Random stuff about me:
We have a large family! With recent additions, we are the parents of 8 children, (five in the home).
We have a precious daughter-in-law who started out as a fan of my books. When she met our son, their lives became a real life Love Inspired romance. We now have a grand-baby who steals the show!
I grew up on a chicken farm in a town with no population sign. We had TV but you had to turn the antenna to get a signal. I read a lot of books.
I love horses and love to ride, but I don't own a horse at this time. (big unhappy face)
We lived in Germany and our first son was born there. He weighed just over 1 pound.
We traveled to Yugoslavia while it was still Yugoslavia. Beautiful country!
I'm a coffee addict.
I do love to watch bull riding.
I love all types of music. I grew up in a musical family. I inherited a love for music but no talent. Growing up our Saturday nights usually included my dad and his friends sitting together on the front porch playing and singing. Usually bluegrass.
Favorite shows: NCIS. The Good Doctor. The Voice.
Favorite Vacation Spot: All of them. We loved Key Largo. Absolutely love to cruise. The mountains are amazing. Anything that takes us away is perfect.
I love children's ministry and ministering to couples.
