Thank You

Every once in a while, the sun peeks out from between the clouds, and it fills your heart with love. I’m celebrating with a giveaway of 7 signed copies of the paperback edition of my new book, Collateral Damage.

Books are a great escape for some of us, a learning experience, a form of entertainment. Believe me, writing books is an even higher high and a more perfect escape than reading them. I learned this writing my first book, Doing Max Vinyl.

Reading my three books in the order they were written is the ideal way, because there is a progression and development in my main character, Annie Ogden. But it’s not essential. You can also start with Collateral Damage and work backwards.

Until we meet again, here is that link to enter the Goodreads giveaway. 7 lucky people will win an autographed copy. Enter today! Please note I had to limit it this time to U.S.A. and Canada residents. I’ll do a worldwide giveaway at some later juncture.


Frederick Lee Brooke launched the Annie Ogden Mystery Series in 2011 with Doing Max Vinyl and followed with Zombie Candy in 2012, a book that is neither about zombies nor sweets. The third mystery in the series, Collateral Damage, appeared in 2013. Saving Raine, the first book in Fred's entirely new series, The Drone Wars, appeared in December 2013, and was followed by its sequel, Inferno, in June 2014.

A resident of Switzerland, Fred has worked as a teacher, language school manager and school owner. He has three boys and two cats and recently had to learn how to operate both washing machine and dryer. He makes frequent trips back to his native Chicago.

When not writing or doing the washing, Fred can be found walking along the banks of the Rhine River, sitting in a local cafe, or visiting all the local pubs in search of his lost umbrella.
