My name is A.L. Brooks, and I write lesbian fiction, both erotic and romantic. I’m from the UK, and I currently live in London, although over the years I have lived in places as far afield as Aberdeen and Australia.
I work 9-5 in corporate financial systems, which keeps me in front of a computer screen for the majority of my day. To counteract that, I spend most of my lunchtimes in the gym where I try very hard to achieve some semblance of those firm abs I like to write about so much. This is, however, an ongoing battle against my propensity to drink red wine and munch my way through half a slab of dark chocolate in the evenings. Oh, and by the way, it has to be the really dark stuff—you know, at least 70% cocoa solids. None of that wussy milky crap.
I’ve always wanted to write, from a very early age. Most of what I wrote back then was abysmal and embarrassing and has since been destroyed for the sake of all humanity. Now, however, I like to think I’m doing a little better. I love to write. I just love it. I will happily spend many hours a week in front of my own computer screen (after doing hours of that in my day job, go figure?!), just to spill out all the words and stories that are floating around in my head.
When not writing I like travelling both in the UK and abroad, going out for meals (although I do enjoy cooking, it’s always so much nicer when someone else cooks for you), and listening to mellow jazz from the likes of Diana Krall, Chet Baker and Ella Fitzgerald.
