“I hope to continue to put out content that people want to read. If something I write can take someone away from the stresses of their day, I’ve accomplished my goal. I don’t seek to change the world with my books, I have a blog for that, but I do hope to entertain it.”
– E.W. Brooks
Growing up in a small town fuelled my desire to see more and led me to larger cities where I always kept abreast of events via the nightly news and local newspapers.
I was intrigued by the stories of those who made an effort at a better life; on the wrong side of the law.
My curiosities led to much research and my writing, Mafietta.
I am an Army Wife, big sister and mentor with a big imagination. I’m the founder of the Campbell Sisterhood, a group of women who support and empower each other as well as other Army Wives. I also donate 10% of my book proceeds to the Military Matters Project. However, my greatest joy comes from spending time with my family and seeing the smiling faces of those I’ve helped to find a bit of light along their journey.
LOVE, JAIL, or DEATH
ON ONE HAND, I USED MY BUSINESS ACUMEN TO TRIPLE PROFITS FOR THE FAMILY, BUT I NEVER IMAGINED WHAT WOULD AWAIT ME ON THE FLIP SIDE OF THIS COIN.
MAFIETTA 2: A HOUSE DIVIDED TO BE RELEASED MAY 12
E.W. Brooks is a dynamic and profound novelist who draws you onto an adrenaline rollercoaster via her “Mafietta” novella series.“MAFIETTA 2 : A HOUSE DIVIDED” is a brilliantly entertaining and captivating novel that demands your attention as the story unfolds and Clarke, the story’s protagonist, is left to take control of the scandalous underworld Brooks has created.
“For the smiling faces around me; Independence Day symbolized freedom. As for me, I couldn’t be more trapped.” – Clarke, Mafietta 2: A House Divided
E. W. Brooks is the founder of the Campbell Sisterhood, an organization geared toward supporting and empowering Army Wives. As a result of her love for the Military family; Brooks will donate 10% of the novel’s proceeds to the Military Matters Project. While Brooks’ novels may depict a woman empowered by her dealings on the wrong side of the law, it doesn’t negate the face that Clarke’s path to self discovery is one all women can learn from.
“Buckle your seat belts and hide your kids because “Mafietta” is one relentless thrill ride from beginning to end. Female empowerment is boasted proudly in this fast paced novel. Brooks doesn’t hold back as she challenges the characters’ mental and spiritual development throughout the book. “Mafietta” is a highly recommended book club favorite.” – M. White, Author
I wrote the series because after watching many different shows about crime families from The Godfather to Belly to American Gangster or even Training Day – none of them fully address the impact that a life of organized crime has on the woman in the picture. I wanted my series to address that as well as the many ways women evolve in an effort to maintain certain relationships.
For me, it was important to get the story out there just to see how the world would react to Mafietta, so self publishing worked for me.
Mafietta 2 Brief Synopsis – The Mafietta Series highlights the budding and passionate relationship between Clarke, our story’s protagonist, and Errol, her suitor and head of The Port City Kings, a family engrossed in organized crime.
