Brooke Carter loves books.

She loves to read them and she really loves to write them. She also writes screenplays, poetry, and creative-non-fiction, but her dream gig has always been writing young adult fiction.

Writing hi-lo teen novels for Orca Book Publishers has been a great privilege, and she’s proud to work with a publisher that is dedicated to creating diverse books for teens.

Brooke earned an MFA in Creative Writing from UBC, and has worked as a copywriter and a creative writing instructor. When she’s not writing, she reads all the books she wishes she could have written, and she watches a lot of movies, too. And TV. So much TV.

She lives in Maple Ridge, BC, with her family.
