Born in Modesto, California, Brian graduated high school in 1985 and went into the Air Force where he trained as an Avionic Specialist on the F-117A Stealth Fighter.
When his tour of duty ended, he tried his hand as a Pizza Hut delivery driver where he quickly rose to become General Manager of a delivery unit in Edmonds, WA and continued as such for several years.
Then after a short stint driving a taxi, he spent two years teaching teenagers how to drive. (Not as stressful as one would imagine.) He now writes full time in Washington, USA.
His published works include:
The Morcyth Saga (7 Books)
Travail of The Dark Mage (2 Books)
Improbable Adventures of Scar and Potbelly (series)
The Broken Key Trilogy (3 Books)
Dungeon Crawler Adventures (2 Books)
The Adventurer's Guild (2 Books)
Ring of the Or'tux (Stand Alone)

I first stumbled across 'the unsuspecting mage' while looking for something else to read on my iPad. Noting that it would cost me nothing to download I was intregued enough to download it (note I'd not seen any reviews, I just made my own mind up).
Within 10 pages I was hooked and quickly bought the rest of the series.
With this series I was looking around authors I'd read previously (always do that first to see if anything new is available) to find brian had written more... a whole lot more!
This series appealed to me because it has a very D&D feel to it (I could almost imagine myself rolling dice, deciding the fate of the characters within!). Brian has done it again, I quickly bought the other two in the series and sat down to read them all.
I can recommend these books to anyone, they will capture your imagination and allow you to 'visualise' the situations and surroundings the main characters get themselves in and out of.
Please keep up the writing Brian, I look forward to the next 'series' you do!
