About Brooke

I am both the B and A in BA Writer.  Plenty of days those two letters don’t seem like quite enough to keep all the balls in the air, but there is certainly never a dull moment.  I am a writer, teacher, publisher, and biologist–mostly in that order.  I work in a variety of fields and contexts, but words are the common thread through almost everything I do.

With an MA in communication where I studied family health crises and an MS in biology where I looked at mammalian physiology, my work spans several genres.  I am an author with a book, a freelance writer, and I do freelance marketing and design.  I teach classes and do private writing coaching, I blog when the mood strikes, and I also try to make sure I spend some time working on new books and growing my fledging indie press, Wonder Lake Press.  You can also follow me on instagram @bawriting.

Here at BA Writing, you can find links and information about all the ways that I’m using words to engage in the world.  Take a look around and reach out if I can help you with a project or if you’d just like to talk about writing, science, health, education or anything over coffee.

I love stories. I think that so many times we go into a story to meet a character, and we wind up meeting ourselves. We are surprised and comforted and sometimes a little bit scared. But I think that we are almost always more alive.

As a writer, I care deeply about words and using them to create a picture that shows the world both in a way that is so familiar and also reveals what we had never noticed before. I think that is why I write. To describe a world that is near and dear and still a little bit unseen. And maybe that is why you would enjoy reading my book. To see what we know about in our heads in a way that you have never seen it before.
