This week’s podcast is with Judith Brenner (The Moments Between Dreams, Greenleaf Book Group Press, May 2022). An historical fiction which encompasses not only the polio epidemic but also issues of domestic abuse, Judith’s novel is a homage to both her mother and grandmother as well as the sacrifices women made in the years directly after the war. We discuss her publisher’s process for picking the book’s title, the questions she’s asked most often at book clubs, and the quirky way she makes money as a writer.
Judith Brenner is a freelance journalist, and a book editor with her own company, Creative Lakes Media, LLC. She owns the national Sharpeners’ Report and publishes related sharpening non-fiction books about how-to sharpen blades, from beauty tools to clipper blades. Judith completed a certificate program for an MFA from the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop. She earned her MBA in Marketing from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, and her undergraduate degree from Columbia College in Chicago, where she was raised. Her favorite seasonal writing desks are at a cabin in Minnesota and in California’s Coachella Valley. Travel and gardening, reading and enjoying family are her greatest joys.
