Clifford Brooks, a native of Athens, Georgia, grew up running wild among trees and open air all over his home state. He began to write as an escape and his passion for letters grew over time into short stories and humorous non-fiction he became known for in smaller literary circles. His first book, The Draw of Broken Eyes & Whirling Metaphysics became a means of introduction to a much wider audience. Before turning teaching and creative writing into a means of financial survival, Clifford worked as a bookseller, juvenile probation officer, and social worker.
The Draw of Broken Eyes & Whirling Metaphysics has been nominated for 2 Pushcarts, a Pulitzer in Poetry, and Georgia Author of the Year. He is also the founder of the Southern Collective Experience. A unique collective of creative individuals, whose cardinal virtue is to promote the arts, in all its forms, proving that integrity, high standards, and classical understanding of the past, present, and future of expression do exist.
