Brook Lynn is raised by her mother after her parents' divorce, but lives with her father as a teenager. She is a talented song writer and singer and her mother, a band manager and record company executive, often pressures her to pursue a singing career. Brook dates Diego Alcazar for a time, but they later break up. She is also involved in adventures with Georgie Jones, her uncle Dillon Quartermaine, and Sage Alcazar, who competes with her for a recording contract. The obnoxious Sage is murdered by serial killer Mary Bishop after she is locked in the Quartermaine freezer by a fed-up Georgie. Sage is a sitting duck for the killer, who mistakes her for Brook's adopted cousin Emily Quartermaine. After her death, Brook puts a poignant song written by Sage to music and records it. Sage's uncle Lorenzo Alcazar blames Brook and the other teens for her death, but is brought to tears when he hears Brook perform the song. The following year, Brook is a victim of the Port Charles Stalker, who drugs girls and takes pictures of them. The stalker later turns out to be Sage's cousin Diego, who had read her journals and decided to get revenge on Brook and the others on her behalf. Soon after, Brook Lynn decided to leave Port Charles and return to New York to pursue her music career.
