"Who's Keith Brooke?"
Born 1966, I grew up in Harwich, an east coast port in Essex, England. Spent my teens birdwatching, playing truant, playing lead guitar in third rate rock bands, reading Heinlein, Asimov, Wyndham, King, etc. Went to university in Norwich to study ecology; ended up studying environmental politics, meteorology, economics, anthropology, planning, and social sciences. And reading Gibson, Shepard, McEwan, Greene, Sterling, etc, etc.
"But who is Keith Brooke?"
I have four children: George (born 1991), Molly (born 1993), Edward
and Daisy (both 1995). I live in Wivenhoe with Debbie.
"Come on: answer the question. Who is this guy?"
He's also Nick
"But what does this guy do?"
I used to design and develop multimedia learning materials, but now
I'm Web and Learning Technology Manager at the University
of Essex. I write science
fiction and fantasy. I have a PhD and I lecture on science fiction
and creative writing. I scare
children under another name. I run infinity plus.
When I find the time I still do a little birdwatching. I believe passionately
in equality, sustainability and, sort of, well ... you know
... fuzzy-minded, well-meaning liberal politics.
And that's enough about me.
