Brooke R. Calder

Brooke R. Calder is an author, producer and songwriter.

Boston born, Brooke grew up between the United States and Zimbabwe, Africa, and currently resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

A former journalist for Pulse and published under assorted nom de plumes, Calder began her songwriting career as a studio chanteuse, eventually sharing credits with Phil Solem (The Rembrandts), Rick McCollum (The Afghan Whigs), Monte Moir (The Time), as well as a tiny video stint with Prince.

When she isn’t waxing poetic or wildly scribbling notes for a new book, she’s a fan of art, cinema, reading, and occasionally, the Oxford comma.  She most enjoys the works of Agatha Christie, Anaïs NinBaz Luhrmann, the BrontesCharlie ChaplinEmily DickinsonFred RogersJean Cocteau, Neal KarlenNeil StraussP.G. Wodehouse, Rachel Hollis, Susan DavidWarren Ellis, as well as science fiction icons Gene Roddenberry, Ray Bradbury and William Gibson.

With Poems About Boys publishing this Spring, Calder continues to research and pen In Praise of Men.
