I have spent ages trying to write this post. For some reason it has taken longer than usual to find the right words to introduce you to someone I consider to be a fine author and hugely talented. Even those words don’t do her justice. To prove I mean what I say I am going to offer a copy of one of her books to two of you, free.
K.S. Brooks may not be known to you. I’m going to cheat a bit here and copy out some of her Amazon page details just to astound you:
Kat has been writing for over thirty years. (Yeah, I know. She doesn’t look old enough!) She penned her first book, a swashbuckling action-adventure based in 17th century France, when she was fifteen years old. In 2001, her first novel, Lust for Danger, was published. That action-adventure novel won Ms. Brooks Honorable Mention in the Jada Book of the Year Awards, and invitations to speak at the Maryland Writers’ Association Writers’ Conference, the Bay to Ocean Writers’ Conference, and numerous other venues. She has been honored by the Maryland Writers’ Association three times by participating as a judge in its annual novel contest.
Since her relocation to the wilderness of northeastern Washington State, late in 2008, Ms. Brooks has completed the following works which have been published by Cambridge Books: the suspenseful romance, The Kiss of Night (2010), Night Undone (2011) and three children’s books: The Mighty Oak and Me (2009), Postcards from Mr. Pish Volume 1(2010) and Volume 2 (2011), and Mr. Pish’s Woodland Adventure (2011). Odd and Odder: A Collection of Sensuality, Satire and Suspense, was co-written with author/scientist Newton Love and published in 2011. She has six more novels planned in the original Agent Night Adventure Series, two in the Agent Night ‘Cover Me’ series, a horror novel, and a number of Mr. Pish children’s books in the works.
In addition to her writing, Ms. Brooks is an award-winning photographer and poet. Her articles, photographs, poetry, and blogs can be found in books, magazines, newspapers, galleries, and web sites worldwide. She currently writes three different blogs, and is a guest blogger for a number of web sites including CeliacChicks.com and Celiac-Disease.com. In December of 2011, Ms. Brooks was recruited to serve as co-administrator of Indies Unlimited – a multi-author website dedicated to the independent publishing community.
Pretty impressive stuff, eh? I read one of the Mr Pish books a few weeks ago and fell in love with the little darling. Who couldn’t like that cute face? Postcards from Mr Pish: South and West Edition is an exceptionally professional and educational book that takes you on a journey through the southern and western parts of the USA. Pages are set up as a series of postcards sent from Mr Pish, the adorable Jack Russell Terrier, and framed with fabulous photographs.
There is nothing ‘childish’ about this book which I found both informative and fascinating. I would not hesitate to recommend it for any child to help teach them about the geography and history of the USA and also for adults. It is a beautiful book to own and look at. The style is perfect and would appeal to any youngster. K.S.Brooks succeeds in making learning fun. In brief, it is a superb book that I would happily gift to friends and young family.
You might not want to win or own a copy of one of Mr Pish’s books but today I am offering two lucky winners a choice of any of K.S.Brooks books. Yes, you can choose which you would like to read.
