Brooklen Borne is a native New Yorker who grew up in the Brownsville section Brooklyn. He began writing short stories in his sophomore year of high school, based on his street experience. His high school English teacher enjoyed his stories and advised him that he should enter his writings in the state wide writing contest. He didn't follow through with her suggestion because the streets were more appealing. Four days after graduating from high school, Mr. Borne entered the Marine Corps; in the aviation supply field. As a Marine he also served as a Drill Instructor, Anti-terrorist Instructor and upon retiring, he achieved the rank of Master Sergeant. Years later a tragic event in Brooklen's life brough him to a pivotal point leading him back to embrace his passion for writing. He is now working on a novel detailing those events titled: "Based on a Lie." Brooklen has completed four novels, one of them titled: "Being Homeless Is Not an Option" was published by Publish America LLLP. That book can be purchased on Amazon.com, along with all major online book stores.
