Brooke Anderson

I love stories. I think that so many times we go into a story to meet a character, and we wind up meeting ourselves. We are surprised and comforted and sometimes a little bit scared. But I think that we are almost always more alive.

As a writer, I care deeply about words and using them to create a picture that shows the world both in a way that is so familiar and also reveals what we had never noticed before. I think that is why I write. To describe a world that is near and dear and still a little bit unseen. And maybe that is why you would enjoy reading my book. To see what we know about in our heads in a way that you have never seen it before.

Brooke has been writing for many years, but while you are waiting to dive into this book, you can learn more about her at, and you can follow her most recent musings at her blog
