About K. S. Brooks

K.S. Brooks has been writing for over thirty years. An award-winning author and photographer, she has written more than 20 titles, is currently the co-administrator for the superblog IndiesUnlimited.com, and is founder of "Authors for Hurricane Sandy Library Recovery" and the "Liberty Library" for soldiers and veterans.

Ms. Brooks penned her first book, a swashbuckling action-adventure based in 17th century France, when she was fifteen years old. Since then, despite working for a living in the electronics industry, she continued to write. In 2001, she left the high-tech arena in Boston for the Eastern Shore of Maryland to pursue her writing.

That same year, her first novel, Lust for Danger, was published. That action-adventure novel won Ms. Brooks Honorable Mention in the Jada Book of the Year Awards, and invitations to speak at the Maryland Writers' Association Writers' Conference, the Bay to Ocean Writers' Conference, and numerous other venues. She has been honored by the Maryland Writers' Association three times by participating as a judge in its annual novel contest.

As the business world and health issues took up more of her energy, Ms. Brooks set her sights on moving West to an environment more suitable and affordable to a writing career. Since her relocation to the wilderness of northeastern Washington State, late in 2008, Ms. Brooks has completed the following works which have been published by Cambridge Books: the suspenseful romance, The Kiss of Night (2010), Night Undone (2011) and three children's books: The Mighty Oak and Me (2009), Postcards from Mr. Pish Volume 1(2010) and Volume 2 (2011), and Mr. Pish's Woodland Adventure (2011). Odd and Odder: A Collection of Sensuality, Satire and Suspense, was co-written with author/scientist Newton Love and published in 2011. She has six more novels planned in the original Agent Night Adventure Series, two in the Agent Night 'Cover Me' series, a horror novel, and a number of Mr. Pish children's books in the works.

In addition to her writing, Ms. Brooks is an award-winning photographer and poet. Her articles, photographs, poetry, and blogs can be found in books, magazines, newspapers, galleries, and web sites worldwide. She currently writes three different blogs, and is a guest blogger for a number of web sites including CeliacChicks.com and Celiac-Disease.com. In December of 2011, Ms. Brooks was recruited to serve as co-administrator of Indies Unlimited - a multi-author website dedicated to the independent publishing community.

Review by: Jane Hepner on June 29, 2013 :
I loved this book! It's full of great photos and information that kids of all ages will love! The book is told from a dog's point of view, which will entice children to read the book and ask themselves the questions asked by Mr. Pish. This book would be a valuable educational tool for city children who have never had the opportunity to travel or visit a farm. Moms, Dads and Teachers should consider getting the whole series of Mr. Pish books for the children in their lives.

Review by: Chris James on June 26, 2013 :
Mr Pish Goes to the Farm is an ideal picture book for children, and cleverly educational. The pictures are top quality and evocative of farm life, and Mr Pish encourages youngsters to think by asking them questions in the text. This impressed me because it’s a great example of how to get children to think about important things, like where food comes from, without them realising it. As a parent of three, I’d thoroughly recommended this book for pre-school and other young children.

A wonderful little book. Being a farmer and an author, I appreciate all the time and effort that went into it. In this day and age, children are not taught where their food comes from, other than a grocery store. We need to make sure there is another generation of farmers out there, without them, we will starve. Hopefully this book will motivate children to look farther than their grocery store when it comes to what they put in their mouths. Bravo!

Mr. Pish, through his stenographer, K. S. Brooks, shares his adventures visiting many farm animals and scenes. Though familiar with farm life, I learned things I didn't know, and all the time enjoying the clever wit and charm of Mr. Pish's prose. What a lovely book. I know what to give as a gift to parents with young children!

Very cute!
I love that he starts off not wanting to go and in the end was super excited. Just like a little kid.
I really enjoy the educational aspect as well as giving kids a farming experience. The pictures of Mr. Pish with the animals was great!
Learning about the vehicles was a great experience and Mr. Pish in one of them was a cute touch.
I've really enjoyed this adventure.

The entire Mr Pish series is not only delightful but educational, and if I had grandchildren I would buy them the entire series. (Having no grandchildren, I actually bought them for myself.)
Mr Pish Goes to the Farm, the sixth in the series is my favourite. Again, it is a series of postcards ‘written’ by the adorable, and I mean adorable, Mr Pish who is quite probably one of the most photogenic dogs I have sever seen. Each postcard is accompanied by superb photographs, hardly surpising given Ms Brooks acclaim as a photographer.
There are lots of children’s books about farms and farm animals but this one stands out for me, packed as it is with information about farms, machinery, animals and where food comes from. The postcard idea is innovative. The photographs alone are educational but supported as they are by text, they ensure children spend more time absorbing the information. Of course, Mr Pish is there to guide and inform them. What child wouldn’t want a dog to ‘talk’ to them? It is without doubt, one of the best educational books I have read on this subject.
Children (and adults) will be entranced by this book. For us Brits, this is a fantastic book that gives children an introduction into American life. Take a look at all the Mr Pish series and learn about the States. I can’t think of a better way to journey through the US, than with K.S. Brooks and Mr Pish, other than catch a flight, of course!
