ABOUT BRENDA O'BANNION
Brenda O'Bannion is a career educator who loves spending time writing for children.
Many of her stories take the reader back to a time that is nostalgic and wholesome
for both parent and child.
Brenda was born in East Texas and lived most of her childhood in the piney woods around
the Sabine River. As an adult, she has lived in both South and East Texas. She did her
undergraduate work at Stephen F. Austin University and received her masterís degree from
Lamar University. Brenda spent 32 years as a classroom teacher and as an administrator.
She is now retired and living in Georgetown, Texas where is she continuing her writing
and doing book presentations.
From the time she was 10 years old, writing has been a part of Brenda's life. As
an elementary student, she always participated in UIL writing events and later,
wrote for her high school newspaper. As an adult she has written many stories for
her students and, more recently, for her granddaughter.
Quoting Brenda -- "For me, writing is just necessary. It is both relaxing and
stimulating. Nothing is more difficult than searching for just the right way to
say something; but then, nothing feels better than getting it just right! Knowing
that my stories will be in the hands of children and will help foster a love of
reading in them is truly a blessing for me."
Aside from writing, Brenda enjoys spending time with her children and grandchildren.
She also enjoys quilting and teaching quilting classes.
