Snowbound Holiday by Irene Brand

Missing Christmas with her family bothered Livia Kessler, but not as much as being stranded with strangers...and her teenage crush, Quinn Damrow. He'd broken her heart when he'd told her she was too young for him. Yet perhaps their snowbound holiday—and a Higher Power—would bring love for Livia and Quinn after all.

A Season of Hope by Dana Corbit

Once again attorney David Wright found himself playing Joseph for the church's live nativity. And when his very pregnant friend, Allison Hensley-Chandler, had to bow out as Mary, David was paired with Allison's cousin, all-business Sondra Stevens. But holiday preparations and babysitting Allison's little girl forced David and Sondra to work together. Would they realize that Christmas truly is the season of hope...and love?

Meet the Author



Born on a small hillside farm in West Virginia, the youngest of eight children, Irene Brand still lives in the same community where her parents were born and where her ancestors settled in the 1840s. Her education started at the age of four in a one-room school.

Irene graduated from high school at the age of fifteen. During her four years of high school she walked five miles daily, round-trip, to catch the school bus. Irene didn't start college until she was in her 30s. She received two degrees from Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia.

Early in life, Irene had two dreams--to become a schoolteacher and to be a fiction writer. These dreams came true when, in 1966, she became a social studies teacher at Point Pleasant Junior High School, and in 1984 when her first novel, A Change of Heart, was published. Irene retired from teaching in 1989 to devote her time to writing.

It took many years for Irene to break into the publishing field. Her first manuscript, Freedom's Call, was rejected by eighteen publishers. One publisher kept the manuscript for one-and-a-half years; another publisher intended to publish, and even edited the text, but finally returned it because they couldn't find the proper niche for the book. The book was released in 1990 by a publisher who had rejected the manuscript two years earlier. In the meantime, Irene had had other books published.

Irene has had many amusing incidents during book signings. Appearing in a mall bookstore, one boy approached her and asked if she was acquainted with Robert Louis Stevenson--one of his favorite authors.

At another autographing session a woman came and, rather than approaching Irene, she stood to one side and stared at her. When she had a break, Irene asked the woman if she could help her. The lady responded, "I don't really have time to read, for I have seven children, but I heard on the radio that you were going to appear here. I'd never seen an author, and I wanted to know what one looked like." In a radio interview, prior to a book signing, the emcee asked, "Have you ever read any of your books?"

Irene married Rod Brand in 1956, and they plan to observe their Golden Anniversary in April, 2006. The Brands have traveled to thirty-five foreign countries, the last one Ireland in 2001, being there on traumatic 9/11. They have also visited all fifty states. With the publication of her 2005 October and December books, Irene will have thirty-seven titles in print, with two more under contract for 2006.
