Writings

Brower's book The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House has been called a "groundbreaking" backstairs look at the maids and butlers[5] and other professionals who work at the White House.[6] The book hit number 1 on the nonfiction New York Times Best Seller list. Netflix has optioned the TV rights to the book with Shonda Rhimes producing.[7]

Her second nonfiction book, First Women: The Grace & Power of America's Modern First Ladies, examined the lives of the First Ladies of the United States. The book was called a "gossipy, but surprisingly deep, look at the women who help and sometimes overshadow their powerful husbands."[5]

Her third nonfiction book, First in Line, covers every vice president of the modern era, from Richard Nixon to Joe Biden and Mike Pence.[8]

Brower's fourth nonfiction book, Team of Five: The presidents Club in the Age of Trump, examines what has been characterized as the world's most exclusive club, membership limited to the former presidents of the United States. Brower looks at the relationships between the former American presidents as well as the strains between this rarified group and the (at that time) current occupant of the Oval Office, Donald Trump.[9][10]

Brower authored Elizabeth Taylor: The Grit and Glamour of an Icon, the first authorized biography of actress and activist Elizabeth Taylor, in 2022.[11]
