Brenda Cothern

Brenda is unlike most authors since she only began writing 2010. She never wrote fan-fic but has been an avid D&D player for over 35 years. Painting pictures and telling stories for gamers to see in their imaginations came naturally and now she does the same in her novels.

She is an International best-selling author and her love for reading fantasy, paranormal, and contemporary erotic romance has allowed her to apply her Bachelor's degrees in management and marketing to her new career.
Her first best-seller in 2012, Coming Home, was Brenda's first attempt at a short story and admittedly 'shorts' are not her forte. Brenda's Shadows universe has been compared to True Blood or Anita Blake by fans and her Mad Dogs series have received rave reviews for its uniqueness. Brenda utilizes her 20+ years in the leather & kink lifestyle to make her BDSM books (Undercover Love, Fire & Ice, & Barely Restrained) realistic. They are also what Brenda considers her best work.

Brenda travels the country appearing at leather events and conventions. She frequently is asked to speak on panels about writing and BDSM/kink related topics or teach classes on Negotiation, Flogging, or Rope Bondage. When Brenda is not writing; she lives and breathes in the Tampa Bay gay leather community. She was a member of the Tampa Leather Club for 5 years before they disbanded and the only associate member to receive an award (2011) for her dedication toward making the club events all they can be. In 2014, Brenda also received the award for Ms. Community Service 2015 from the Florida Puppy Contest organizers. In 2015, Brenda was again honored for her service to the community when she was pinned 'Mama's Tampa Wench' by Sandy 'Mama' Reinhardt who has been an activist for over forty years. Less than 2000 leather community members worldwide have received this honor. Brenda was also member of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for 5 years. In Nov., she became (the first) Ms. Florida Leather n' Fetish Pride (2016) and in Jan. 2017, she purchased the weekend event that is held in Florida annually.

Brenda resides in Tampa with her husband of 20+ years, 5 cats, a rabbit named Alice, and a turtle named Tammy (the rabbit & turtle aren't hers). She is the mother of three beautiful daughters and a grandmother of two gorgeous granddaughters, a grandson, and another grandchild on the way!

Brenda loves to hear from her fans so don't hesitate to contact her online!
