K. J. Brookes lives with his wife Amanda and their dog George in the town of Perth in Scotland. He tried his hand at numerous pursuits over the years (including accounting and modelling), before finally setting on a love for writing. Like many of the great stories that’ve been written in the past, the ideas he has for books come from dreams. The night he dreamt up Tom Woolberson, he awoke in the morning and furiously started scribbling, before the dream could vanish forever to that place where all spent dreams go. He advises anyone who would like to turn their own dream into a book, to push on through the writers’ block, and never let anyone tell you that it can’t be done.
