After a childhood spent moving around the world with his RAF officer father, Lee Brook chose a nomadic lifestyle for himself.

As well as serving in the British Army, with tours of Berlin in Germany and active duty in Northern Ireland, Lee emigrated to Australia where he worked in the business press publishing industry. He has also lived in India.

Lee says part of his motivation for producing his first book, Reflections, is to show young people feeling disillusioned with their life opportunities that anything is possible.

He points as an example to his father Eric Brook and his fellow co-founders of Bourne Salads who began with a blank sheet of paper and ended up creating a company employing hundreds of people.

In the same way Lee has drawn on his life experiences to write Reflections – and he has more literary plans in the pipeline.

A second volume of poetry titled Avalanche is due to be published shortly and Lee is also working on his first novel, The Wolf of Berlin, a work of fiction set in 1940-1945 Europe.
