I grew up around the world, immersed in different cultures and landscapes. Being a military brat has its perks. Somehow (okay, because of a boy) I settled in Nevada, and I’ve been blessed with a lovely little family. I dote over my two children as we explore the Sierra mountains surrounding our valley.

At night I make time for my insane love affair with books, with their smells and their covers and their stories. Also, I write, write, write. I’m proud to be an active member of the NV SCBWI critique group.

I’m a writer, but I’ve never been an author (officially agented though!). I’m bent on changing that sentence. Follow me on my writing journey to eventual publication.

My name is Brandi M. Ziegler. Remember it.
