Brooklyn Wallace was born in a tiny town of less than 1,000 people in the backwoods of Texas. Her anxiety (affectionately dubbed ‘painful shyness’ by her mother) inhibited her ability to connect with her peers early on, and the internet became her refuge. At twelve she read Nancy Farmer’s Sea of Trolls series, and knew that writing was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. The majority of her teen years were spent writing terrible erotic Yu-Gi-Oh! fanfiction, raiding her local library’s YA section, and avoiding human interaction.
Now a starving graduate student in North Texas writing slightly better erotic Yu-Gi-Oh! fanfiction, Brooklyn is active in fandom, sci-fi and anime conventions, and the queer romance community. She is an independent researcher of male interpersonal relationships and queer representation, and presents her findings at various conventions across the States.
An anxious perpetual sleeper with a penchant for self-deprecating humor, Brooklyn has a soft spot for writing comedies, forbidden love, and nerdy queers. When not writing, she enjoys touring various anime conventions, reading and writing fanfiction, yelling about sports, and watching TV shows religiously.
Brooklyn had her literary debut with the 80s movies reference-filled sci-fi comedy TO TERMINATOR, WITH LOVE under the pseudonym Wes Kennedy. She hopes to write more nerdy, QPOC-lead fiction throughout her career.
