Hello and welcome to my website,

First of all, let me introduce myself, I’m Anna-Leigh Brooks, Author of the The Older Woman. In case some of you aren’t aware, this is the first in a trilogy of novels I wrote during lockdown (2020) and the first novel I’ve ever published.

As you can imagine I’m both excited and nervous, well when I say excited, that’s an understatement, I’m super-excited, to the point it feels surreal that my first novel is going on sale and people are going to buy it, read it and fall in love with it, as much as I was writing it.

I’ve always loved reading right from an early age, if you were to ask my mum, she’d tell you that when I was younger and playing ‘schools’ with my friends, I would make them all sit down and listen whilst I read them a story! It’s a wonder I had any friends 

I still find it hard to believe that something as wonderful as this can come from a chance conversation, (especially as I only started writing short stories back in 2014 but never did anything with them) however, I soon came to realise I have a creative mind for the erotic romance genre.

So fast forward 7 years and here we are, publishing my very first novel and what an experience this has been! If some one had told me about the trials and tribulations of self-publishing, I honestly think I wouldn’t have done it, there have literally been so many tears of frustration you wouldn’t believe it, but we’re here now and that’s all that matters. 

So for now, I’m going to sign off, but before I do I just want to say thank you and I truly hope you enjoy reading about Jamie and Jess and if like me you have a favorite character don’t forget to let me know.
