Hey, I'm Brooke.

When I first started writing for kids, I would struggle to get all my thoughts into a first draft. That's when I created a template to make sure I had all the information I needed BEFORE I started writing.

The questions in this template have led me to create dozens of award-winning children's books, and now I'm sharing it with you. So you can easily create the children's book you've been dreaming about, too.

I hope that meeting you will be the beginning of my journey to writing my first children’s book."
