Brenda M Laneabout this book: Under the Eye – A Composer's Journey was written to chronicle the hilarious, gripping, miraculous adventures that I have passed through to get to the calling of my life.

As I shared in concerts the stories behind the songs, audience members would later tearfully share how my life experience had given them hope. I was continually asked to write my life story. Inspired by their reactions I finally penned the book.
• Who are the primary readers for your book?
If you need some laughter, some mouth-opening wonder, or just a little encouragement for the daily doldrums of life, pick up the book and read it. My readers have come from all walks of life; men and women who have faced or are facing terrible setbacks, emotionally paralyzing situations, or are just plain depressed. In Under the Eye they have found moments of inspiration, and a few belly laughs to help them walk through their own personal trials.

• How did you come up with the title?
The title Under the Eye depicts God's interaction in my life even when I had no clue that He was with me. The subtitle A Composer's Journey is exactly that ... my journey.
• Why did you choose this cover?
There is a famous painting, by Heilige Schutzengel, of children crossing a bridge with their guardian angel hovering over them. The cover of my book was chosen as a wink to that painting, only in my cover the rays of light shining down on the hiker represent the Eye of God.
• What was the hardest part of writing your book?
The hardest part of writing my book was re-living the torturous experiences in my life… those experiences before the deliverance. But it was in the re-telling of the awesome deliverances that kept my pen firmly planted on the page.
• Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
Yes, I did learn something. I learned that editors are a gift from God!
• Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Yes, First – thank you for purchasing the book. You bless my life in more ways than you will ever know. I appreciate the kind remarks and am lifted by hearing YOUR stories of deliverances! And Second – I pray that you will find in your own experience that God is enormously in love with you.
