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!). Follow me on my writing journey to eventual publication.

My name is Brandi M. Ziegler. Remember it.
