E.W. Brooks

Biography

“I hope to continue to put out content that people want to read. If something I write can take someone away from the stresses of their day, I've accomplished my goal. I don't seek to change the world with my books, I have a blog for that, but I do hope to entertain it.”
- E.W. Brooks

Growing up in a small town fueled E.W.’s desire to see more and led her to larger cities where she always kept abreast of events via the nightly news and local newspapers. Brooks was intrigued by the stories of those who made an effort at a better life; on the wrong side of the law. Her curiosities led to much research and her writing, the "Mafietta" series.

Brooks' series chronicles a family, thrust into the throes of the underworld, and their mission to create legitimate wealth. The series takes its reader on a roller coaster of emotion as Clarke struggles to overcome their past and bring pride to her family's name. "Mafietta" garnered the attention of BET Music Mogul Damon Dash in June of 2015 and the duo began production within 2 weeks. Dash enlisted the help of fellow Harlem native Murda Mook and Flava of Love Contestant Deelishis to brings Brooks’ words to life.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in a small North Carolina town with only two stop lights. My desire to see more led me to larger cities where I always kept abreast of events via the nightly news and local newspapers. I was intrigued by the stories of those who made an effort at a better life; on the wrong side of the law. My curiosities led to much research and my writing, “Mafietta” in hopes of shining a light on what the women who aspired to date these types of men would face when they were shipped away.
When did you first start writing?
I’ve always written. My grandmother communicated with me in letters for as long as I can remember and it ultimately helped me to express myself through writing. Then, after living a bit of life, it was important to me to share the struggle of the single woman and urban community, so writing a novel seemed to be the natural next step.
