Brandy Herr grew up in Euless, Texas and graduated from Trinity High School in 2001. She went on to graduate from Penn State University in 2005 with a major in public relations and a minor in theatre. She moved to Granbury, Texas with her mother in 2009, and together they founded the Granbury Ghosts and Legends Tour in 2010.
Brandy has always had an interest in writing, and her work with the ghost tour helped give her the opportunity she needed. In 2013, she was contacted by The History Press and asked if she would be interested in writing a book about the ghosts of Granbury. Haunted Granbury was subsequently published in February of 2014.
When fellow author Tui Snider tagged Brandy in a Facebook post about a publishing company promoting an open call for submissions for an upcoming anthology about odd or mysterious cats, she crafted her short story, "The Calico," and submitted it for their consideration. She was elated when they accepted her story, and Nine Deadly Lives: An Anthology of Feline Fiction was released in October 2015 by Fire Star Press.
In addition to her writing, Brandy also offers editing and proofreading services. She has edited books written by Ken Sagoes, star of A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 and 4, and is a staff writer for Lake Granbury Living Magazine. She has several other writing projects in the works, so hopefully you will see other published work from her sometime soon!
Brandy been the guest on several local and national podcasts and has been a guest speaker at various libraries, schools and festivals. She has been featured in conjunction with the Granbury Ghosts and Legends Tour and the Granbury Paranormal Expo on many TV outlets, including FOX 4's Lone Star Adventures, NBC 5, The Daytripper and Good Morning Texas. Most recently she was seen in an episode of CNBC's new series Cash Pad.
Brandy Herr currently lives in Granbury with her husband, her two rescued dogs, and two rescued cats. She has a passion for animal rescue and advocacy. She also loves anything nerdy, including video games, horror movies and books, and Harry Potter!
