I met Brenda Anderson at my first ACFW conference (that’s American Christian Fiction Writers, for the non-writers among us!). I learned that she is Minnesotan through and through, that she doesn’t like spicy (or weird!) food, LOVES Marvel movies, and that she calls brownies, “bars.” She is a delight, and thanks to our mutual friend, author Lorna Seilstad, we became friends online first, and then in person!
More about Brenda and her books, and remember – read all the way to the bottom for the SECRET WORD, and to ENTER at the “Rafflecopter Giveaway” link!
Brenda writes gritty and authentic, life-affirming fiction. She is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers, and is Past-President of the ACFW Minnesota chapter, MN-NICE, the 2016 ACFW Chapter of the Year. When not reading or writing, she enjoys music, theater, roller coasters, and baseball (Go Twins!), and she loves watching movies with her family. She resides in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area with her husband of 30 years, their three children, and one sassy cat.
Brenda is excited to tell the world about her next book project with The Potter’s House Books! In the Fall of 2017, Brenda was invited to join six other authors to tell stories of Hope, Redemption, and Second Chances.

Here’s the back-cover blurb for Capturing Beauty, which I absolutely loved!
He’s a nature photographer returning to make amends.
She’s a camera-shy naturalist seeking privacy.
Their love for a boy brings them together,
But the camera could drive them apart.
Photographer Haven Carlysle is a changed man. Six years earlier, he had run from his tragedy-filled life in Duluth. Now he’s back in town to capture the North Shore’s beauty … and to recapture the love of his son. But that means making amends with his ex-girlfriend too. When camera-leery Callie Beaumont steps in to bridge the relationship between Haven and his former family, he’s wary, but she’s his only hope.
Callie Beaumont is surrounded by beauty. Her parents are local news celebrities. Her sister is a model. And Callie is … Ordinary. All her life, Callie has longed to work outdoors soaking up God-breathed beauty, and the opportunity is finally on the horizon. But being the liaison between the handsome photographer and his son has thrown her dreams, and her heart, into chaos.
Can Haven capture her heart when she won’t let him capture her image? And will his poor choices cost Callie her dream job and him the love of his son?
