I am Shelby James – self-loathing poet and artist, daughter, sister, best friend, and bisexual commitment-phobe. My life has been a lackluster existence. The only constant bright spot in my life is my best friend, my soul-mate, Veronica “Roni” Monroe.
For years, I have given into my lust for both men and women, but now, at the age of thirty-two, I realize I need more than a just good booty call.
I need more.
While on my search for “more”, I find much more than I bargained for. This time, giving into my urges may destroy everything good in my life.
Follow me on my journey to find my happiness. To find the real me. To find the beauty in the darkness.
Growing up, Brooke's mother instilled a deep respect for the English language and a love of words. She taught Brooke to read and write and shared her appreciation for poetry. As a teen, poetry became an outlet for Brooke's innermost thoughts and deepest, often times darkest feelings.
In school, teachers always told her "write what you know", so that is what she did. At the not so tender age of forty-three, she started to write her first novel, I Am ShelbyJames (Beauty in the Darkness) and it is what she knows--emotions.
In her spare time--when she's not writing--you can find Brooke cuddled on the couch with her husband of 20+ years, their fur babies, and a good (often naughty) eBook--unless of course she's having cocktails with her Bestie at one of their favorite haunts.
