Brenda’s deep love of nature has prompted her to write “The Doughty Warriors” series. She hopes it will help children understand how important it is to preserve our planet, and to play their part in doing so.
Influenced by her father’s war-time diaries, observations of the African bush and life in the steaming tropical rain forests of Malaysia where much of her childhood was spent, Brenda has always been captivated by the power of description in the writing of others. From the earliest age, she loved nature. As a child, she spent many happy hours in the African bush, and in the Malaysian forests, with binoculars, seeking out and observing the wild life.
