Quotations[edit]

  • 1993 Jonathan Kellerman, Devil's Waltz, Random House 1998, ISBN 0345460715, page 85
    "Cassie B.," I said. "What does the B. stand for?"
    "Brooks - that was my maiden name. It's sort of a tribute to Aunt Harriet. It's not exactly feminine, I guess. Brooke with an e would have been more of a girl's name. Like Brooke Shields. But I wanted to remember Aunt Harriet."
