Previously working in traditional publishing, Brooke noticed the injustice, specifically that many talented writers do not get their due and that publishing decisions did not appear to be about the content or quality of the work. As champion for the underdogs, Brooke set out to do something about it. She established safe and trusted communities of writers and warriors that have shared values and support one another. Through her tireless efforts, Brooke has brought legitimacy to non-traditional publishing. She shares these powerful nuggets of life wisdom:
– sometimes, we get in our own way and turn against ourselves
– we need to be mindful not to internalize negative messages
– rejection of our work is not rejection of ourselves
