Brenda Marie Webb is a self-proclaimed history nerd and a member of the Historical Novel Society. She lives in Wisconsin with her husband, 2 crazy rescue dogs, and a lot of cats.
A Thousand Mothers is Brenda's first historical fiction novel. She recently finished working with other writers from around the world on a Holocaust Survivor interview project through the Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center in Philadelphia. The project paired historians, professional writers, journalists, teachers, and professors with a Holocaust survivor, liberator or resistor to document history based on their testimonies. The essays have been published and are available as academic resources for educators and students.
When she isn't glued in front of her computer writing, Brenda volunteers her time at her local food pantry and animal rescue. She also enjoys reading, traveling, and watching old movies. She admits to being a Parrothead and looks forward to proudly wearing her hula skirt and parrot jewelry each August at a Jimmy Buffet concert. If you press her, she will also admit to being an "old soul hippie" who loves Carole King and James Taylor music.
Brenda has a BA in history and has taken advanced courses in Holocaust studies through Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. She has a passion for helping Holocaust and concentration camp survivors tell their stories.
She is currently working on her second novel, another WWII fiction novel that follows Mattie Kaczlowitz through the horrors of Auschwitz to an unexpected reunion. She hopes to have it published in 2021.
