Anne Brooke (born June 21)

Anne Brooke was once voted Woman Most Likely to Become a Serial Killer at one of her many jobs, but the next month came second in the Top Banana Award, so feels there's no accounting for taste. Instead of causing havoc amongst the hard-pressed Police Force, she decided to become a writer, and now scribbles away in a variety of genres, including gay romance, fantasy, comedy, thrillers, biblical fiction and the occasional chicklit novel.

When the wind's in the right direction, she has even won a writing prize or two, and has been shortlisted for the Harry Bowling Novel Award, the Royal Literary Fund Awards and the Asham Award for Women Writers. She has also twice been the winner of the national DSJT Charitable Trust Open Poetry Competition.

She's never met a chocolate she doesn't like (with the possible exception of Ferrero Rocher), and once took a dawn balloon flight over The Nile, much against her better judgement. She spent most of the time screaming.

An Essex Girl at heart, Anne now lives in Surrey with her long-suffering husband and spends a lot of time in the garden attempting to differentiate between flowers and weeds.

The Bones of Summer won a 2009 Rainbow Award as Best LGBT Mystery / Thriller.

The sequel to Maloney's Law, garnering third place in the inaugural 2009 Rainbow Mystery Fiction Awards... When Craig Robertson’s religious fanatic father disappears, Craig is forced to return to the home he left behind after an underage affair in order to look for answers. He takes with him his new lover, private investigator Paul Maloney, who is more than willing to help solve the mystery. During his initial search, Craig locates items that belonged to Michael, his lover in that long-ago ill-fated affair, and soon discovers that Michael has disappeared as well. The search becomes an investigation into Craig’s past, and, because of distressing gaps in his memory, he’s terrified of the truths he might find. As Craig’s obsession with uncovering clues grows, however, his fragile relationship with Paul begins to disintegrate. Haunted and stalked, Craig has to face down the horror of his memories if he wants to have any hope of a future at all...
