Robina Brooks is the pen-name or pseudonym of Author Ann Brady.

Due to this book containing some adult content and because Ann has written a large number of children’s Picture Books, she has chosen to write and publish this story under a pen-name, not wanting to ‘muddy’ the waters between the two genres.

Ann has 35 plus years in the writing world of both non-fiction and fiction. Apart from her own writing she currently mentors writers, of all ages, worldwide; often offering younger writers the opportunity to publish their work through her publishing business Pen & Ink Designs Publishing.

As part of her mentoring services Ann produces regular podcasts to assist new and developing writers in their writing journey. These can be discovered on the Mentoring Writers website,, or through any good podcasting hosting programme.

Ann also operates a small independent publishing business in South Wales, UK where she works with other authors as well the young writers. The business is recognised as an Independent Welsh Publisher, and is a member of the Publishers Association UK and the IBA USA.

Ann is a member of the following associations:

SOA & ASA (Society of Authors in the UK and in Australia)

SCBWI (Society of Children’s Writers & Illustrators - International)

ALLi (Alliance of Independent Authors - Author & Partner Members. She is also classed as an Ethical Member of ALLi)
