Writer Bio

Brenda Sinclair Sutton recently retired and restarted her writing career. She's hammering away at five projects in the forge, including a humorous novel about a woman who fools an entire town into believing that her long-dead husband is still alive. In college Brenda Sinclair Sutton majored in Theater with an emphasis in play writing. Her play, Poor Howard, was produced to critical acclaim on the stage of the Pardoe Theater at the Harris Fine Arts Center. Many of her one-act plays were produced in the Margetts Theater and other venues. In 1977 her one-act radio drama The Horse's Mouth won first place in the KSL Radio Play Writing Contest sending her to New York to meet with the producers of Radio Mystery Theater. In 2016 her short story, Good for the Soul took second place in The Writer's Magazine themed contest.

Writing Style

As an award-winning song writer, Brenda Sutton's lyrics tap into all five senses with humor. Her musical training flows into her prose.

Writing Goal

I am so close to finishing my novel, Scarecrow Dreams. The beginning is done, the end i fleshed out. It's just the middle. Right. The middle bits bog me down. Five solid middle chapters are what I wish to concentrate on, and the first draft is done.

writing goal:
5 chapters written
