Who Is

Koko Brown?


Koko Brown is an USA TODAY Bestselling author and romance junkie who once read over 200 Zebra romance Club novels the summer before her senior year in high school.

Her writing career began at the tender age of nine when she self-published and distributed a newspaper for her fellow classmates. Unfortunately, her grade-school principal Mr. Clark didn’t appreciate the competition and put her out of business after one best-selling issue.

Undaunted, Koko continued to write and read everything she could get her hands on. She honed her writing skills as a staff writer on her college’s newspaper, writing obituaries for the local newspaper, and even teaching American Literature.

One day, while daydreaming in bed, she came up with the idea for her first erotic manuscript. Taking a hiatus from teaching, she had enough time on her hands to flesh out the story in two short weeks.  A month later, she cleaned it up and sent it to Ellora’s Cave .  By January, she received a revision letter from one of their editors and by March she signed a contract for her vampire erotic novel Charmed.

Koko calls the east coast of Florida home. Even though she’s a multipublished author of interracial erotic romance, she has a life.  She loves to travel (three continents, 20+ countries and 38 states so far), shop in thrift stores, ride motorcycles, and volunteering.

    Ms. Jackson! You go girl… I was searching for my high school teachers to see if they were still teaching, my oldest is ten years old so I wondered if she might have the same teachers as me, and I found you! You go girl!

    Debbie Curtis,

    Glad you found me! Yes, boxed sets ARE NOT a walk in the park. You should reunite the authors that dropped out. If you need advice don’t hesitate to email me. cocobuttr 72 @ yahoo.com (minus the spaces.

  3. Hi Koko, I was reading an article on romance university and the author mentioned the boxed set, and that you were the brains behind it. We ‘met’ back in RedSage secrets authors, and I just wanted to congratulate you on your success! Funny on the boxed sets, I retired to write on Jan. 3rd, and happened, in Dec. to see that some other RS authors were doing a boxed set. What a fiasco…first I was writing a historical erotic novella, then a contemporary erotic, then a ‘hot’ contemporary….then, we found out that the unifying element was a character in the ‘organizing’ woman’s other stories….Damn…I dropped out, as did some others…so I had a muddle of a book on my hands, especially after doing things like changing char. motivations when it went from erotic to hot, deleted 7,000 words. Anyway, glad you are doing well. Debbie 🙂

  4. Found you via twitter. Great baseball article, BTW. As a teacher, I work with students who have emotional and often criminal issues. They’re busy creating those casual encounters ads and dating profiles. Gives you a whole different spin next time you read them.
