To enter, just complete all the easy entries on the Rafflecopter on the bottom of this page. Today let's hear from author Brenda Ashworth Barry and what she's thankful for:

Grateful to be an Author

I am grateful for many things in life, my family, parents and friends. This year I am very grateful for getting the first two books in my saga out. Seasons of Love and War and December Road, took me over five years of working almost daily. Being an Author is a lifelong dream. Getting my books in the library is just the icing on the cake.  So, I’d have to say that being an Author is one of the things I’m most grateful for this year.  Holding the books in my hand was as close to the same feeling I had when my children were born than I’d ever imagined. A sense of pride, love and giving life to something that wasn’t there before. I’m most definitely grateful and feel blessed.


Brenda Ashworth Barry's first book was a memoir titled, Healing the Voices Within, which was never published, but sponsored on a local TV station and flew off the shelves at her Healing Center in Redding California.

Her most recent work is a six-part saga of star-crossed lovers separated by the war in Vietnam, entitled Seasons of Love and War. Brenda worked for over five years to bring the six part Saga alive. Now December Road is also available.

Brenda lives in Roseburg, Oregon, by the Umpqua River, and has raised four children, three birth children and one adopted born in her heart. Her husband, who was in the military for 21 years, gave her help and encouragement while writing her novel. When she's not writing, she can normally be found walking the trails with her husband and their little dachshund, or in their RV enjoying nature
