Brooks regularly covers cyber-security, , defence research, dual-use technologies, and policy implications that cut across all these domains. He has moderated many international security and defence-oriented conferences. Author of Pick-up Sticks, a social crime novel set in 1960s small-town Texas, Brooks is working on a new social comedy novel set in New York during the Reagan years.
