Regina Brett is the author of Be the Miracle: 50 Lessons for Making the Impossible Possible and God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life’s Little Detours. Both books are collections of inspirational essays and stories about the lessons life taught her.
She was named a Pulitzer Prize finalist twice, in 2009 and 2008 for columns she wrote for The Plain Dealer, Ohio’s largest newspaper.
When Regina turned 50, she wrote a column on the 50 lessons life taught her. A life as an unwed mother. A life as a single parent for 18 years. A life searching for love and finally finding it at 40. A life interrupted by breast cancer at age 41. A life that reflects the ups and downs, twists and turns we all face, but usually not all in one lifetime.
Readers love her lessons. They post them on their refrigerators. They carry them in their wallets. They tuck them in their purses. They email them all over the country. God Never Blinks is in its 5th printing and is in 20 countries.
Her lessons have traveled the world from Austin to Australia. A Land Rover dealership in Cincinnati hands the lessons out to customers. A cancer care agency gives them out with every wig. Teachers share them with students in health classes. Her books are the perfect gift for graduates, newlyweds, retirees or for anyone celebrating a birthday or facing a challenge.
Regina has been writing professionally since 1986. She began writing columns in 1994.
She has received numerous national and state writing awards. The Plain Dealer is the largest newspaper in Ohio and one of the top 16 newspapers in the country with a circulation of 300,000 and a readership of over 1 million.
Her Plain Dealer column focuses on the issues of every day life. Sometimes touching, often funny and always provocative, Regina's columns touch people where they truly live.
She also hosts “The Regina Brett Show,” a weekly call-in radio show every Wednesday on WKSU 89.7 FM, Northeast Ohio’s NPR affiliate station.
She has a master’s degree in religious studies and a bachelor’s degree in journalism, and has been a guest lecturer at John Carroll University, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland State University, Kent State University and Ursuline College.
Regina is married and has a daughter, two stepsons and two grandbabies. She lives in Greater Cleveland.
