About Me


Hello and Welcome!

Hi - I'm Miss Brooks - but of course you can just call me Antoinette...

I'm a storyteller, poet and illustrator who lives in wonderfully historic London. 

I am passionate about poetry, storytelling and encouraging children to use their creativity to tell their own stories.

My stories are often inspired by the tales my mother told me as a child about her childhood in rural Jamaica, my books have been described as uplifting, warm and positive - with the ability to deal sensitively with big subjects too.

My poetry and stories are written with a great deal of love and compassion in my heart. Parents tell me how much both they and their children love the warmth and sense of joy found in my writing. I hope you find something here to inspire you!

With love,

Antoinette Brooks xxx
