FAN of the MONTH – Brooke

FAN of the MONTH – Brooke

There is nothing more rewarding than finding a fan who reads one of your books and then continues on to read all of the others…and that is exactly what happened with Brooke Varn, our celebrity Fan of The Month.

I met Brooke when her youngest daughter was in the First Grade Sunday School Class I taught. We both attend Westside Baptist Church and Brooke sings in the Praise Team every Sunday. For years I have enjoyed her singing and every so often we find time to chat either before of after the service. Recently our discussion turned to books and I discovered Brooke enjoys reading but had never read one of my books, so I said I would send her a copy of my newest release Memory House.

After Brooke finished that book, she moved on to Spare Change and the rest of the Wyattsville Series. When she finished the Wyattsville Series, she segued right into The Serendipity Series and within a month or two she had breezed through every book I’d written. She has now joined the ranks of fans waiting for The Loft, the second book in the Memory House Series. In my mind there is little doubt that an avid reader such as Brooke deserves to be our Fan of the Month for July.

Brooke is married to Rusty, works in their family business, and is the mother of three beautiful children. She is a joy to know and a true blessing to those of us lucky enough to hear her sing on Sunday mornings. I am honored to count her among my fans.

A special thank-you gift will be going out to Brooke.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
