Freelance Writer

AGE: 32

HOMETOWN: Roseville, Michigan

   I started writing when I was a young, free-spirited girl.  My travels and my loving home inspired my pen to move gracefully across the paper. My dad passed away over eleven years ago and my pen took flight, bringing memories back to life. Thus, I created a blog that includes poetry and “mini-memories”.  I am now married to my soulmate and he inspires the love that reddens my words.  My writing is filled with imagery and tender moments. I'm also an aspiring children’s author who has completed a manuscript.


I received a Freelance Writing Certificate Diploma through Penn Foster Career School. My writing portfolio consists of feature articles, staff writing, and a memoir in local magazines. I also received a Poetry Certificate of Completion through St. Clair Community College in Michigan.


My dad was a monumental figure in my life. He always told me, “Go boldly!”  My husband is my biggest supporter and he always tells me, "Keep on keeping on."  I’m walking boldly on a writer’s journey to published dreams. 

I am bonded to you, soldered, braided, knotting tied. Our love has walked over fields, horses rushing behind. Stream flows under hobbit bridge nearby. Magical day, Gandalf could be heard, wishing sigh. Under willow of journey chapter, we smile with laughter. “I love you” was said while lady bugs landed. Oh, but didn’t matter. - Brandy O'Banion-Baudoin

2 Timothy 1:7

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
