D H Brooks
Consumed by rock music, animation and superhero comic books since age four, writer D H Brooks studied Creative Writing and Comparative Literature at California State University Long Beach, working toward a degree in Electronic Media. Having developed a great interest in Atlantis-related subjects, Ms. Brooks first wrote of the aquatic denizens of Nereidia in comic book form in 1993. Around the same time, she created "Champ, The Kickin' Kangeroo" as a mascot for the San Diego Sockers professional indoor soccer championship team. She later supplied research notes for TechTV's 'pop-up' version of the Gerry And Sylvia Anderson series "Thunderbirds" ™, as well as material she licensed to A&E; Home Video for the DVD "The Best Of Thunderbirds." A lifelong Southern California resident who well remembers the Helms Bakery, milk delivery, the many local dairies and the dwindling vernacular architecture of the area, the author lives in Los Angeles, never far from her beloved Pacific Ocean. Ms. Brooks is a member of the Society Of Children's Book Writers And Illustrators, The Greater L.A. Writers Society and Children's Book Insider and has been a sustaining member of Comic-Con International for over eighteen years. "A Legacy Of The Pacific" is her debut novel.
