What people are saying:

"Brooke is a very talented writer. She excels at all levels of the process: from pitching insightful stories to getting the right people to say the right things to stringing together the quotes and facts with accuracy, relevance, finesse, and professionalism. She comes in ahead of deadline and she is a pleasure to work with during edits. I look forward to working with Brooke again." - David Lott, Web Content Editor, HowsMatter.com

"Brooke wrote the only article about me that I ever wanted to show to anyone. She is a great writer with an energetic, economical style. The piece she wrote made me much funnier than I am in real life. I considered hiring her as my biographer, only to realize she boiled down whatever was interesting about me into one page." -David Goodman, Executive Producer, Family Guy
