Your real name and pen name? Brooke Williams for all of it!
About your education
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a double major in Religious Studies and Mass Communications
What career did you plan during your education days
After a couple years of college, I planned to go into radio. And I actually did for a decade. When my first daughter was born, I left that full-time career to stay home and that’s when I started freelance writing and that led to novels later on.
What is your biggest source of inspiration in life?
Since I’m a romantic comedy author, funny, random things that happen to people are a huge inspiration.
If you had to live a day of your life as one of the living or dead personality, who would it be and why?
I would love to live a day in the life of a man, in general. I want to see how their minds work and how it is different than the way I operate just to gain a better understanding of the gender as a whole.
When did you start writing? What is the purpose of your writing?
Because I can’t NOT write! I love it too much. It’s a part of me almost as much as breathing. The purpose of my novels is to make people smile and give them a break from the everyday stress of life. They’re an escape.
Which of your work has been published so far? Would you like to share a synopsis of your work?
Someone Always Loved You, a family drama.
Wrong Place, Right Time, a romantic comedy
Accept this Dandelion, a romantic comedy.
Mamarazzi, a romantic comedy
Dandelions on the Road, a romantic comedy
Shower in the Rain, a children’s book

What are your forthcoming writings?
I have two more complete novels written. “After the final dandelion,” the third book in the dandelions series, and “The Leftover,” a new romantic comedy. I don’t know what I’ll do with them yet, but be watching for them!
How do you plan, schedule and monitor your writing commitments?
Mostly emails. I have a freelance writing business so I keep emails from clients until I complete the project. Then I delete them or file them elsewhere. Sometimes I get buried in emails, but if I don’t have the email, I don’t remember to do the project!
What are your future plans?
I have two young daughters, only one of which is in school. Once they are both in school, I’ll be able to expand what I do further.
Is a high level of imagination important to have for an Author?
When it comes to being a fiction author, yes absolutely. It takes imagination to create characters and give them opportunities to do things within the book.
Your origin of birth and other countries you have visited/ stayed. What best things you liked in these countries around the globe?
I was born in Iowa and now live in Nebraska, not a huge change in scenery. But I’ve traveled in Europe. I was taken by the beauty of Austria and Switzerland.

The last thing to do before sleep?
If one fine morning you wake up and find your sex changed to the opposite, what will be your first reaction?
That’s a hilarious question given how I answered one above. I think I’d be intrigued. And probably anxious to get back to being a girl!
