D. Perdue Henderson

After 20 years of working as an assistant director and stage manager of multiple stage productions and dance concerts, and partaking in music, voice, and art, it was only logical that D. Perdue Henderson would become a novelist too. Her interest in character development and Why People Do What They Do, piqued her interest in psychology and sociology. After taking classes in these fields, and plenty of research, it gave her the perspective she needed to write about the more difficult subjects like abduction and depression, but in a way that is sensitive, yet entertaining. Every story captivates! You will think about the subject long after you finish reading one of her books. Her first novel Branded (CreateSpace, 2010) is a good example. It is a suspense thriller about a kidnapped child and lost innocence. A disturbing subject for some, but it is written in a way young adults can identify. Her second novel Hayden Heyer and the Twin Guardians (Twin Guardian Publishing, 2012) is the opposite – a fantasy romance with Christian themes. It introduces the reader to the basics of Christianity in a way non-Christians can appreciate, by putting it in perspective with the contrary and adding cute characters.

Branded Teaser3

After six months, I found myself smiling for the first time in a long time. Mostly, because of the freedom and the fact I made friends. My first friend was a horse named Marshmallow, because he had a white square on his forehead. I rode him every chance I could and at night you could …

Branded Teaser2

I decided to take his advice and stay on the floor, out of his way. Considering how angry he was, it was safer. He slammed both hands against the steering wheel, closed his eyes and took a deep breath. He glared at me again before starting up the truck and heading for the highway. About …

Branded Teaser1

I left the school, put my headphones on and started my music, heading home. I was a half block from the school and passed a beat up old van, as I was changing songs. The side door quickly opened and startled me. A big burly man that reeked of cigarettes jumped out and grabbed me. …
