Book Buzz edited the overview of Frederick Lee Brooke Monday, September 24, 2012.
Frederick Lee Brooke writes books because he loves playing with language, on the one hand, and creating characters and seeing what crazy things they will do if you set them free. He's spent more than 20 years living in different European countries such as France, Germany and Switzerland. He speaks French, German and Italian, and has been learning Turkish for the last five years just for fun.
His books are mysteries, for lack of a better word. Doing Max Vinyl is about a computer recycling con man, while Zombie Candy is about a serial adulterer who happens to love zombie movies. In both books, Annie Ogden, a recently returned Iraq War vet who is having trouble adjusting to civilian life, gets personally involved in taking down these world-class jerks. Brooke likes a book with a good dose of humor, and the humor can come from the absurd situations people find themselves in. He believes the world we live in is an absurd place, and you can either laugh or cry about it.
When not writing he's usually reading.
