Ada Brooks

Labor Day 1974 – I was born, kicking and screaming, in a hospital charity ward in Norfolk, VA. Diagnosed at an early age with bipolar disorder and anxiety, I became dependent upon the arts as a means of escape, expression, comfort, and healing. By keeping journals and sketchbooks for over thirty years, I learned to channel my emotions by putting pen to paper and paint­brush to canvas … and saved a ton of money on therapy.

As a writer and visual artist, with no predetermined goal, my career path was somewhat left up to chance and opportunity. I studied art education at Virginia Wesleyan College, but when it became critically clear that teaching wasn’t my calling, I became the art director of a commercial photography studio. But once I started writing my first book, the chase for my American dream began … I had never felt more invigorated.

Inspired by my crooked path, Not Enough entertains life through the mind of Rose Moon, the witty and mixed-up high school student who anxiously charts her own course through the most trying and turbulent week of her life.
