Laurean Brooks writes inspirational romance with heart, wit, and humor. Chivalrous heroes stand by to rescue their heroines from a plethora of scrapes they manage to get themselves into. Her sassy heroines are familiar with the taste of their own shoe leather, since foot-in-mouth episodes prevail throughout her stories.
Ms. Brooks developed a love for writing after she’d read a book report to her fifth-grade class and the teacher announced to the students, “One day Laurean will become an author.”
Ms. Brooks’ imagination got her into trouble that same year when she wrote an assignment on Columbus’s adventures. Or should I say Columbus’ “mis”adventures?
Miss Mary didn’t crack a smile when the wild natives stuffed Columbus inside a cannon then shot him back across the ocean. The class found the story hysterically funny, but Miss Mary never cracked a smile. In fact, the teacher politely asked Laurean to rewrite the essay, to make it more “realistic.”
Laurean Brooks titles can be found on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble.

Alma L. C. Jones, a beloved educator, poet/author who is retired (Martin Middle School, Martin, TN), lives in McKenzie, Tennessee. She had always said that she would write a book one day after retiring. To date, she has successfully published three volumes of poetry and one paranormal book. Alma loves to write because doing so is a catharsis for her, in that she can share her deepest thoughts about beings/events (both positive and negative) that have scribbled upon the slate of her soul.
The fact that one of her poetry volumes is a 2nd edition attests to the heartwarming sentiment of Alma L. Jones’ poetry. One reviewer has said, of her poetry, “Unless you have a heart of stone, this poet/author will become one of your all-time favorites.” Alma has further plans for publishing a children’s book, a short story anthology, her complete memoirs, a ladies’ inspiration book, a manual for preachers’ wives, and a Christian Fiction novella. With the publication of her suspense thriller, A Suspenseful Supernatural Event, and her latest book of motivational-inspirational verse, W.O.W. created w.o.w., Alma is well on her way to the fulfillment of those plans. Her motto of: “Doing What I Can While I Can” seems to keep Alma thoroughly engaged as she is seldom seen without her pen, tablet and/or IPAD. She says, of her writing, “When there is a poem or a story inside of me, I just have to get it out because there is no peace until I do.” Alma says that to breathe is to write.
In a nutshell, Alma is:
- A Retired Teacher of 30 years
- A Retired Housing Coordinator of ten years for the State of Tennessee
- An Author of four books
- Most Importantly, A Christian Woman
