Following the example of a mother who still loves books at age 91, Brenda taught herself to read as a preschooler. By age five, she was an avid reader of everything from Golden Books to the Classics.
Her love of writing was sparked by a creative writing teacher in elementary school. She served as editor of her high school newspaper and won a statewide writing contest. Later, as an elementary school teacher, she had opportunities to inspire and mentor other young writers.
Since retiring, Brenda C. Poulos has published four fiction books and two non-fiction interactive picture books for Alzheimer patients. Using her past experience as a teacher and elementary school counselor, along with her love for scripture, Brenda’s books have brought encouragement and hope to hundreds of readers worldwide.
Brenda and her husband, John, live in Mesa, Arizona. They have four adult children and seven grandchildren. Favorite pastimes include reading, volunteering, and traveling.
Brenda is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and is past president of Christian Writers of the West.
Brenda blogs on spiritualsnippets.com, focusing on “Seeing Life’s Events in the Light of God’s Word”; she offers encouragement to new writers on brendapoulos.org.
