Trudy Brandenburg loves kayaking, writing, reading, drawing, and bird-watching. Over the past thirty years, she has kayaked on dozens of rivers and lakes throughout the country, in addition to the North Atlantic and North Pacific oceans, and the Gulf of Mexico. Her passions flowed together to create The Emma Haines Kayak Mystery Series. Four books are currently in the series.
She is a member of the Southern Ohio Floaters Association (SOFA) kayak and canoe club, based in her hometown of Chillicothe, Ohio. She is a featured speaker at various writing events and enjoys teaching her popular class “Creating Fictional Characters.”
The Emma Haines Kayak Mystery Series and author interview were featured on VoiceCorp, a reading service based in Columbus, Ohio, that provides audio broadcasting for people who are blind or have other conditions that prevent them from reading standard print. Trudy’s writing has appeared in newspapers and magazines, including The Columbus Dispatch, My Scioto Valley Magazine sponsored by the Chillicothe Gazette, Quirk’s Marketing Research Review, The Consultant, published by the Association of Consulting Foresters, various online publications, poetry books, Holistic Discoveries magazine, and in newsletters.
If you don’t catch her kayaking or writing or creating her designer “Trudle” greeting cards, bird-watching or sketching, she may be enjoying a walk through Clintonville, Ohio, or hanging out along Lake Erie near Marblehead, Ohio. Or she could be doing research for the Fortune 100 insurance company, where she’s worked for the past thirty years.
