Hi. I’m Vera Brook and I’m a neuroscientist turned fiction writer.

I write fantasy and science fiction. Or speculative fiction, as it’s sometimes called. In other words, the type of stories where I can change something about the world and get away with it.

After studying several fields – including literature, philosophy, genetics, and neuroscience – I’ve decided that I AM INTERESTED IN EVERYTHING.

Which sounds great. But it’s actually a bit of a problem if you’re trying to be a serious, focused, responsible adult with serious, focused responsibilities.

I’m okay with it, though. In fact, my list of interests keeps growing. (Physics. Cover design. 3D printing. GOOD BOOKS OLD AND NEW!)

Plus, if you’re a writer, everything is research for your next novel. And that works for me.
