Brandy Potter lives in Maryland with her husband, daughter stepsons and pets. She has been writing since she was 9 years old. She has several published poems, but Venomous Lives was her first published novel. Currently in development are a Paranormal/suspense romace and a romantic thriller
Her character development focuses on the psychology of the every day person, fictionalized visions of the people overcoming their conflicts. She enjoys watching people and observing their behaviors. What makes us and at times what breaks us. She likes strong female leads but maintains that they are strong in different ways. She also shies away from the industry pre-packaged protagonists. Her fans say that her characters are so developed that they often have a hard time letting them go and are always routing for a sequel.
Her writing style is descriptive, but not overly so because, as she so aptly puts it, “If I wanted to read a book that tells me what to think and do I would buy a non-fiction book.”
Her writing influences consist of David Eddings, Jane Austin, Rudyard Kipling, J.R.R. Tolkein, Nora Roberts and Steven King.
Brandy is an avid reader who prefers printed books to e-readers because, “There is nothing like the smell and the feel of a book. Besides, as a single mother the only time that I have to read is when I may not be able to have electronics.”
