Welcome to the page of B.S. Gibbs & Brenda S. Gibbs! (one author, two pen names, one publisher)
I hope you will take a few minutes and get to know me as a person and my works through these pages.
I am a mother of two, wife, and lawyer. Thus, writing is something that I have to juggle with a lot of other demands on my time, which often must come first. However, creating stories is something that I find that I absolutely must do whenever I can.
Although I have had many joys during my life, the thrill of writing fiction stories is up there at the top. It also has provided unrivaled joy, inspiration, and personal satisfaction. The pursuit of creativity through writing stories has enriched my day-to-day life by taking me out my comfort zone, stretching my thoughts of the possible, and allowing me to experience the stories myself through my characters. As I develop as a writer, I am also enjoying learning new techniques and experimenting with new ideas.
My writing is inspired by my personal interests, which include the novels of Jane Austen (and other authors of classic English literature), light fantasy, stories about King Arthur, and all things medieval. I am also a fan of kindness, mindfulness, and never giving up on one’s dreams.
Although I have wanted to be a writer all of my life, it wasn’t until in my later adult years that the first story line that I could build into a story came to me. For awhile, I focused mainly on that story line, a middle grade fantasy series called The Emaleen Andarsan Series. From there I branched out with new story ideas, and then latter a new pen name to separate my middle grade writing from my other writing. That said, most of my middle grade work was purposefully designed to appeal to adults as well as kids and some of my adult fiction can be read by older kids.
As I learn and grow in my writing, I hope to be able to flex my imagination to see how far and where it will go! I hope you will join me on that journey!
