About Brian Nash

Brian K. Nash was born in 1961 and grew up on a farm in Kansas. Blind from birth, he enjoyed the loving support of his parents and five siblings, who kept him active exploring the woods and riding horses. The many stories they told him and read to him fostered his love of fiction. He began composing his own fiction for children when his daughter Evelyn was small.

He edited the school newspaper at the Kansas School for the Blind. Later on, he received computer training and became an adaptive technician, teaching other blind people to use a computer. He has extensive public speaking experience, especially to groups of school children, seeking to educate others regarding blindness and the capabilities of the blind.

Henrietta of Valley View Farm is the first of Brian's several books for children that are being published by Smashwords. His lively, entertaining stories are set in a fictional place that has a lot in common with the locales he knew and loved as a child. The animals - chickens, cats, dogs, horses, birds, frogs, and many more - can talk to each other, and are among the most vivid of the many characters. They often have much to teach their human friends as they work together to overcome whatever challenges are thrown at them. Adventure abounds, and friendship always triumphs in the end.

Review by: Beth Winne on July 12, 2010 :
Both "Valley View Farm" and "Midnight to the Rescue" will remain in my family's library FOREVER! The stories are timeless classics for the "young at heart". In this ever-changing, fast-paced world, stop and breathe with these stories of the sweeter, simpler life of bygone days. Breathe in the wind and animals and farm life and country....and escape to a forgotten place.

Review by: Leonore H. Dvorkin on May 20, 2010 :
I am so happy to see another book set on Valley View Farm! This one is every bit as charming as HENRIETTA, but quite a bit deeper. Both the animals and the people have some real problems, here, but by helping each other, they solve them beautifully. I guarantee that the part about the owls and the cats will bring tears to your eyes, and any child who has ever been teased for whatever reason can't help but empathize at least a little with Razzie. I won't reveal here just HOW the boy comes to change his worse than naughty behavior, but I will say that I found his transformation quite believable. This is a wonderful story on every level.
