Originally wanting to be the lovechild of Kathy Reichs and Indiana Jones, Brooke completed a Bachelor of Science in Anthropology and a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature. She later fell into teaching secondary school English and gained a Master of Science in Instruction and Curriculum, specializing in School Library Media. Being a glutton for punishment, she later earned her Master of Information from the University of Toronto. After working for several public library systems in Tennessee and Ontario, she realized her ultimate passion was teen services…and binge watching way too many TV shows.
