Nora is a native of Union County, NC, and holds a BS in the Administration of Criminal Justice from UNC-Chapel Hill, along with a teaching license from the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.

She has been presenting historical drama since 1996. Among her first characters was Mildred Childe Lee, youngest daughter of General Robert E. Lee. She then developed the character of Anna Morrison Jackson, widow of Stonewall Jackson (2001); she later added Julia Dent Grant in 2009.

Brooks has performed throughout North and South Carolina, Virginia, and eastern Tennessee for various groups and interests, as well as various heritage groups such as the Daughters of the American Revolution.
