About

authorphotoabout.jpg

Brenda Robertson Stewart was born near Bedford, Indiana and moved about 20 miles north to Bloomington when she was nine. Both of these areas are in beautiful, rolling hills which geologically speaking, are made up in large part of limestone and sinkholes. Limestone from this area adorns buildings throughout the United States and is known around the world. Oolitic limestone, for which the tiny Lawrence County town is named, has been found in only one other spot on earth in China.

Brenda's first mystery series which begins with Power in the Blood, takes place in these scenic hills.

After graduating from Bloomington High School, Brenda attended Indiana University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in English. She studied oil painting with well-known Indiana painter, Sarah Jayne Hogue, for many years and studied ceramics and sculpting with various artists around the country. She is a forensic artist specializing in facial reconstruction, and has been a figurative sculptor for over 30 years, specializing in Native Americans and other ethnic groups.

A horse breeder for many years, Brenda raised Tennessee Walking horses and racing Quarter horses.

Brenda's short story, Anonymous, was published by Silver Dagger Mysteries (an imprint of Overmountain Press) in the anthology, Derby Rotten Scoundrels, in 2004.

Power in the Blood was a finalist in the 2003 St. Martin’s contest for first traditional mysteries.

Brenda is a member of the Original Doll Artists Council of America (ODACA), the United Federation of Doll Clubs (UFDC), Sisters in Crime International, Sisters in Crime - Ohio River Valley Chapter, and the Speed City Indiana Chapter - Sisters in Crime.
