Spending her childhood throughout Arizona and New Mexico, Brenda Montgomery developed an early passion for writing that she attributed to her family’s travels. Brenda loved to share the beauty and the sorrow of everyday experiences through her art. Her wish was to create connections to other people’s lives through the joy and purpose of her work, and to encourage creative responses from every life she was able to reach.
