About Brenda

I am what I like to call a die-heart romantic. I married my childhood sweetheart, Gerald, forty one years ago and I still proudly wear the ‘going steady’ ring he gave me when were fifteen. I guess because I began believing very early in the power of love and romance, I can't help but write stories with happy endings.

In a way I began my writing career in the eighth grade at Northwestern Junior High School, when I would hand-write my stories for fellow classmates to read. I’m proud to some of those same classmates are still Brenda Jackson readers today!

I have written more than ninety five novels and novellas and have over 3 million books in print. My professional writing career began in 1994 and over the years I have received numerous awards and made many trail-blazing accomplishments by being the first African-American author to have a book published under the Harlequin/Silhouette Desire line of books and the first African-American romance author to make USA Today’s Bestseller’s List and the New York Times Bestseller’s List for the series romance genre.

Today I live with my husband and our two sons, Gearld Jr and Brandon and write full time. I love every minute of it!
