Brenda Sullivan lives in South Glastonbury, CT with her husband Paul and their daughter Katie.
They are avid gardeners who took their love for gardening to a new level by converting their 1.3 acres into a small farm called Thompson Street Farm LLC www.thompsonstreetfarm.com.
Brenda is an herbalist, author, podcaster of Living and Lovin Herbs and market gardener, specializing in growing small leafy greens, microgreens, flowers (mostly lavender) and medicinal herbs. She also makes handcrafted goats milk herbal soaps and herbal bath products using the herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables that are grown on the farm or locally purchased from other local farmers.
For more information on her bath and body products go to www.farmtobath.com.
When time and money permit, they love to travel, locally, called “Daycations” or abroad. All the books they publish are inspired by their travels and have environmental themes.
Katie, the love of their life and the center of their universe, has severe cerebral palsy, epilepsy, is legally blind (with limited vision), and has other serious medical conditions. Katie is nonverbal and wheelchair bound but these challenges haven’t prevented her from experiencing life.
Katie experiences her world on her terms. With the help of assistive technology, other sensory, adaptations, and years of homeschooling experience. Katie understands basic concepts and has developed many interests including an appreciation for music, painting with her Mother, and listening to stories.
She loves being outdoors and we’ve discovered that experiencing her natural world has been Katie’s best educator. This has been our inspiration for creating nature themed children’s books.
Brenda J. Sullivan Books is owned by Thompson Street Farm LLC in South Glastonbury, CT USA, and published through Tree Roots Press.
