Nelson Brooks - Novelist, Poet and Speaker

A collection of Poetry, Fiction and Non-Fiction

About Me

Having been a writer now for over twenty years, I thought it was high time to bring all of my various strings into one bow.  In 2016 I published my first novel, Rules for a Born Again bachelor, which is available on Amazon as hardback, softback and Kindle versions.  I have since completed two more novels and am writing a fourth.  More can be found about them in the fiction section of the site.  The second novel The Perry Gene was released in Jan 2020 on Kindle and Paperback.

The earliest serious writing I undertook was poetry and in total now I have over 3500 poems stored and ready to deploy on top of a passionate love of Japanese short forms such as Haiku, Tanka, Senryu and Sedoka. His work as Poet in residence of Tower Hamlets Cemetery park from 2018 to 2021 has just been released in Kindle and Paperback formats.

Along the way, there have been short stories and forays in to Non-fiction through the Analogies project which is an organization trying to improve compliance to policy through the use of story telling.

Also the other non-fiction writing comes under the guise of Hoofing-IT  my former blog site on horse racing which is due to be turned into a guide to all the racetracks in the UK and will be released in Mid 2022. There is also a plan to produce a biography of Admiral Henry John Rous, the father of the modern handicapping system in horse racing which is scheduled for release at the end of 2022.
