About Brenda Maxfield

I started writing as a child, stories of fairy princesses and talking animals. I have since set them aside to write about teens--their heartaches and triumphs, and always with a bit of romance thrown in to complicate matters. If you're looking for books that are good, clean, teen reads, you've come to the right place!

I'm a high school teacher so I spend most of my waking hours with teenagers. I love chatting with all teens and hearing their views on love and life. My students are magical and I am honored to be part of their lives.

I've lived in Honduras, Grand Cayman, and Costa Rica. Presently, I live in Indiana with my hubby. We have two grown children and three precious grandchildren, special delivery from Africa.

When not teaching, I love to hole up in our lake cabin and write--usually with a batch of popcorn within easy reach. (And my puppy on my lap.)

Review by: Valley Brown on Nov. 08, 2013 :
When parents split up in anger, everybody in the family suffers.

It’s been seven years since Courtney last saw her dad. Now that she’s eighteen, she would just as soon he stay out of her life, except he’s begging her to visit him, and part of her wants to bring closure to this unfinished business in her life. Her little brother doesn’t remember their dad, so she decides to take him along. Courtney really hasn’t sold herself on this whole trip being a good idea -- so many things could go wrong – but she’s not about to let her little brother become a casualty of the war within herself, and between her and her father. After all, it’s almost Christmas. . . Embittered by her parents’ pain, and torn up on the inside, Courtney is poised at the brink of adulthood. Can she forgive her dad for running out on the family? Courtney can handle almost anything life throws at her, but she isn’t sure she can handle that.

Forgiveness is a quality of grace, a profound moment that changes everything. Brenda Maxfield gives us an intimate glimpse of a family that is hurt and angry, and of a girl desperately looking to be healed but fearful of the cost.
