The home site of the Brooks family of Austin Texas will relaunch soon

Karen Brooks, MD, an American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Diplomate
in both General Psychiatry (2004) and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (2005),
maintains a private, fee-for-service practice in Austin. 

Karen also works for the Texas School for the Deaf,
Seton Shoal Creek Hospital, and Carousel Pediatrics.
She also consults for the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired., Karen's private practice website, relaunched in February 2010.

Mark Brooks, an award-winning haiku and renku poet,
recently published a book review in Modern Haiku.
His first haiku collection, A Handful of Pebbles, is available from Snapshot Press.
A limited number of signed copies are available directly from the author.

Selected Haiku

Mark, the creator of the haikai journal haijinx,
publishes haikai under the haigo Shimi (silverfish).
After a few years off from publication, Shimi's haikai appears again in journals this year.
For more info, see the Haiku Registry's recent profile on Shimi (Mark Brooks).

Also, if you are interested in haikai,
haijinx, "a quarterly e-journal with happy graphics" (Modern Haiku, 2006),
relaunched its website on the lunar new year, February 14, 2010.

The new website is based in WordPress. The first article from the haijinx vault
is online and the archives of our original issues are being converted.

Also, haijinx relaunched the haijinx wire, the haikai news service.
Haikai items are posted throughout the day
on Twitter
and then archived nightly and distributed through feeds
and the original haijinx weekly wire email list.

Of course, it's easier to follow @haijinx on Twitter for haikai news and links.

Family, friends & gluttons might prefer Mark's personal Twitter barrage @epikid.

Dylan Brooks and Casey Brooks attend school and have fun in Austin.
