About Mary D. Brooks
Mary D. Brooks is an award-winning, USA Today bestselling author of historical fiction with a splash of urban fantasy. When there is a heroic woman in history, there is a story to be told!
Passionate about the exploits of heroic women throughout history but especially during WW1 and WW2. After years of not giving birth to the story in her head, she finally relented and wrote her first novel, "In the Blood of the Greeks," about the Greek Resistance during WW2 in 2001. She was inspired by her grandmother, who survived Auschwitz-Birkenau, and her grandfather's experiences in the Greek Resistance. Her characters Eva Muller and Zoe Lambros were born - heroic women standing up to the Nazis in Occupied Greece, all thanks to the bravery of unsung heroes.
What intended to be one book has blossomed to ten books! When the characters don't want to leave…
Mary lives in Australia, and by day she's a graphic designer, and by night she writes her WW2-themed fiction and brings forth art into the world. When she's not doing all of that (phew!), she's a voracious bookworm of historical fiction and murder mysteries!
