Brenda Beem.

Author of YA Novel, Knockdown.
Seattle Native.
Lover of Fantasy, Dystopian, and Romance Novels.

Growing up, books were my best friends. My love of literature and the Pacific Northwest continued at the University of Washington where I earned a degree in English.

I began sailing with friends when my children were small, and continue to sail the inland waters of the Puget Sound.

I now live on the shores of Lake Washington. When I'm not with family, friends, or writing groups,  I'm reading novels from my favorite authors, boating, or writing my next novel.
