About the author:
Brooke is a tortured artist who began writing plays in the 3rd grade. After losing her muse as a teen, she struggled for years to write, but what came out on paper never aligned with what was in her heart. Finally, after being inspired by some old friends, her writing came to fruition which became her first published novel, Desperate Times, Second Chances.
Inspired by strong women who have a driven purpose and very little tolerance for bull, she enjoys exploring equality in relationships with broken characters who clearly have made past mistakes. Don't we all?
What inspired you to write your book?
I started this book a decade ago, and when I started going through my old writings again I found myself not being able to put Abi and Austin down – they needed their story told!
Here is a short sample from the book:
“It’s wonderful to see you again,” he said, walking toward her. He embraced her in a big hug, and immediately she was 18 years old again. Returning the hug and sliding her hands along his back, she was overwhelmed with the old familiarity and safety that was impossible not to feel in the comfort of his arms. Unconsciously she lowered her head and began turning her forehead towards his neck, something she’d always done before, nuzzling him as she used to do. Realizing she was already losing herself in him, she snapped herself back to reality.
