About the AuthorHi. Welcome, and thanks for stopping by! I’m Vera Brook, a neuroscientist turned science fiction and fantasy writer. My debut novel, Sand Runner, Book 1 in the Sand Runner series, came out in 2017. Cage Runner, Book 2, is now out as well. I also love to draw (okay, doodle) while listening to story podcasts and audiobooks (thus the coloring books).
