Lee Brooks
Actor and author of Stealing Castro’s Daughter

Growing up in Daytona Beach, Florida, Lee Brooks has always felt the allure of excitement and adventure 400 miles away in Havana. Even after he moved to NYC, he still felt inexplicably drawn to the island.

Having spent his entire adulthood as an actor, Lee appeared in numerous television shows and national commercials before landing the role of ‘Ken Cortland’ in the film, “Sideways.” The film would eventually become recognized as one of the year’s best, garnering an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture, and an Outstanding Cast Performance Screen Actors Guild Award for Lee.

Stealing Castro’s Daughter is his first book. He and his beautiful wife, Adianec, currently live in Santa Monica, CA. and are expecting their first child next Spring – a daughter they’ll name Isabella.
