Brenda Bannister is a talented and successful storywriter. She has published seven stories in Woman’s Weekly, came second in the 2012 Wells Festival Short Story Competition, has had two poems published and writes a regular column for the Western Daily Press.
Her first novel explores the lives of two disparate teenage girls; one, the Edwardian daughter of a tobacco merchant, the other the youngest daughter of a Bangladeshi family. Their connection is the house they both live in - a hundred years apart. Both a ghost story and a social commentary, it describes the effect of family influences on them both. Brenda's inspiration came from the old houses in the area in London's East End, where she used to work, and the changes they had witnessed.
She believes in writers helping writers and she put this into practice by becoming a founder member and trustee of the Frome Writers Collective.
