The author of Storm Path, a novel based on historic events surrounding the 1925 Tri State Tornado and its link to a tornado in north central West Virginia, Brookover has released second work of fiction,Capital Murder Imbroglio . As a college teacher for more than two and a half decades Brookover continues to teach a variety of classes through West Virginia University OLLI. She is available as a public speaker and accepts commissioned work in landscape photography. With an emphasis on story telling throughout her teaching career, Brookover is pursuing writing with the same enthusiasm evidenced by award winning teaching that revolved around story telling as a tool to facilitate interest and understanding. Suspense is the heart of writing. Whether the reader is anticipating a solution to events surrounding a murder or resolution to suffering in the midst of a natural disaster, Brookover lures the reader into the lives of characters who could easily reside next door. The mystery within the stories is character driven. Further information can be found on the MAC Literary Night Facebook page or at Ginger's website
